Ottawa rejects Iran report that blames shootdown of plane on ‘human error’

DM

OTTAWA — Iran’s civil aviation authority is blaming “human error” as the reason why a passenger jet was shot down by the Iranian military in January 2020, outlining its findings in a report the Canadian government rejected outrightas insufficient. Iran’s Revolutionary Guardfired two missiles at Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 shortly after it took off from Tehran on Jan. 8 last year, when “the aircraft was misidentified as a hostile target by an air defence unit,” says the agency’s final report into the crash.
