Certainly, the news came in as a shock for the world as there are no reports of any passenger left alive in the crash. According to media reports, a commercial flight with 176 passengers on board took off from Iran’s Tehran city earlier this morning. However, soon after taking off from Imam Khomeini airport, the Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) flight nosedived into the ground.

Unfortunately, all 176 passengers on of that plane were later pronounced dead as medical assistance reached the scene. Well, the news has been circulating on social media since morning and netizens are completely in a confused state. Assumptions being made, the masses seem divided as several aspects of the story are coming into notice.
Was it really a technical failure?
#Ukraine's Embassy in #Tehran posted this earlier and then deleted.
“the plane crashed as a result of a technical failure of the engine. The possibility of a terrorist attack or missile strike are currently ruled out.”#planecrash #UIACrash #Iran

Assumptions are being made, nothing confirmed yet!
The downed Ukrainian passenger plane was likely hit by one of the missiles fired from Tehran toward military bases in Iraq.

War is not the solution!
Now that we know your beloved Iran has shot down a plane of innocent people, assassinating more than 170 people, will you continue to stand with Iran against America #Ukraine

”That’s not a ‘technical issue’!
That's not a "technical issue". That plane was engulfed in flames going down at a 45° angle. So, a Ukranian (allies of US) Airlines flight goes down in flames shortly after takeoff from Tehran on it's way back to #Ukraine pic.twitter.com/SuieVLt6Rd

Since Iran was stern to retaliate after its esteemed leader Major General Qasem Soleimani was assassinated by the US. Responsively, Iran then raised the red flag of war implying revenge against the US and targeted US bases in Iraq this week. Apparently, the attack could’ve begun a full flesh war between the two countries but thankfully, the world still exists.
Iran’s IRGC targets two US military bases in Iraq!
Certainly, hearing and seeing warmongering elements around, the masses have gradually become frustrated. Well, on the plane crash, the internet has opinionately divided but the majority think that the plane was hit by IRGC’s ballistic missile. Reflecting upon the recent attack, Iran had launched a series of missiles towards US military facilities in Iraq but there’s a clash in reports.
While the national television of Iran is claiming the death of 80 American soldiers, the US hasn’t confirmed it yet. As per official reports, the Ukrainian embassy in Tehran initially accepted it as a ‘technical failure’ but later denied it. Eventually, the stance sparked a debate on the internet while there can be a lot of possibilities for it.
