A security camera footage appeared online supposedly shows that two Iranian sufrace-to-air missiles were launched at the Ukraine International Airlines Boeing 737-800 (Flight PS752) near Tehran on January 8. The plane crashed minutes after taking off from the Imam Khomeini airport.
The previous video circulating online showed a single missile.
On January 11, Iran clamed responsibility for the incident saying that the plane was brought down by its air defense due to “a human error”. However, the Iranian General Staff and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps did not reveal neither the system involved in the incident (supposedly a Tor low to medium altitude, short-range surface-to-air missile system) nor the number of missiles launched. The only detail on the topic provided by the Iranian side is that the plane crashed because of the hit of a “short-range missile”.
