UKRAINE International Airlines flight 752 was likely shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile, according to reported US intelligence.
United States and Canadian officials, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, confirmed their suspicions this morning, with US officials telling Newsweek the incident was probably an accident.
Sources also told CBS that US intelligence detected anti-aircraft radars turning on before the crash, and that satellites detected two infrared blips, thought to be SA-15 missiles, followed by another blip, thought to be the aircraft exploding.
Iran has denied responsibility, with a rep of the military refuting the claims militaristic action caused the crash.
