Iran in blame game over plane shootings, implicates Trump adminstration

By International Correspondent

Last week many people were arrested in connection with the Islamic Republic’s apparently unintentional shooting down of a Ukrainian jetliner.

While Iran has vowed to investigate the incident which claimed all 176 passangers on board it has also alleged the US to take the myriad as the chief cause of the tragedy.

“It was the U.S. that caused such an incident to take place,” Iran’s state-controlled news agency Tasnim quoted President Hassan Rouhani as saying.

The Iranian regime has also blamed the Trump administration for ratcheting up tensions with the controversial decision to kill senior Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in a January 2 drone strike in Baghdad.
