Iran admits it 'unintentionally' shot down Ukrainian plane
Is this true or is it more disinformation?
Looks like it is probably true:
#BREAKING: Finally #IRGC accepted its mistake and announced it. Minutes ago, #Iran's Joint Chiefs of Staff issued an statement & officially admitted shot-down of Flight #PS752 of #Ukraine International Airlines by a Tor-M1 SAM system of #IRGC Aerospace Force near #Parand! https://t.co/YGOY9J5dWO pic.twitter.com/GHrERuFIPj— Babak Taghvaee (@BabakTaghvaee) January 11, 2020
