Iran says it ‘unintentionally’ shot down Ukrainian jetliner – CTV News

January 10th, 2020

TEHRAN, IRAN — Iran announced Saturday that its military “unintentionally” shot down the Ukrainian jetliner that crashed earlier this week, killing all 176 aboard, after the government had repeatedly denied Western accusations that it was responsible.

The plane was shot down early Wednesday, hours after Iran launched a ballistic missile attack on two military bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq in retaliation for the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani in an American airstrike in Baghdad. No one was wounded in the attack on the bases.

A military statement carried by state media said the plane was mistaken for a “hostile target” after it turned toward a “sensitive military centre” of the Revolutionary Guard. The military was at its “highest level of readiness,” it said, amid the heightened tensions with the United States.

“In such a condition, because of human error and in a unintentional way, the flight was hit,” the military said. It apologized and said it would upgrade its systems to prevent future tragedies.

It also said those responsible for the strike on the plane would be prosecuted.

Iran’s acknowledgement of responsibility for the crash was likely to inflame public sentiment against authorities after Iranians had rallied around their leaders in the wake of Soleimani’s killing. The general was seen as a national icon, and hundreds of thousands of Iranians had turned out for funeral processions across the country.

But the majority of the plane crash victims were Iranians or Iranian-Canadians, and the crash came just weeks after authorities quashed nationwide protests ignited by a hike in gasoline prices.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani blamed the tragedy on “threats and bullying” by the United States after the killing of Soleimani. He expressed condolences to families of the victims, and he called for a “full investigation” and the prosecution of those responsible.

“A sad day,” Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted. “Human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster. Our profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people, to the families of all victims, and to other affected nations.”

The jetliner, a Boeing 737 operated by Ukrainian International Airlines, went down on the outskirts of Tehran shortly after taking off from Imam Khomeini International Airport.

Iran had denied for several days that a missile caused the crash. But then the U.S. and Canada, citing intelligence, said they believed Iran shot down the aircraft with a surface-to-air missile, a conclusion supported by videos of the incident.

The plane, en route to the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, was carrying 167 passengers and nine crew members from several countries, including 82 Iranians, 57 Canadians and 11 Ukrainians, according to officials. The Canadian government had earlier lowered the nation’s death toll from 63.

“This is the right step for the Iranian government to admit responsibility, and it gives people a step toward closure with this admission,” said Payman Parseyan, a prominent Iranian-Canadian in western Canada who lost a number of friends in the crash.

“I think the investigation would have disclosed it whether they admitted it or not. This will give them an opportunity to save face.”

Iran admits shooting down Ukrainian airliner ‘unintentionally’ – The Guardian

January 10th, 2020

Iran has announced that its military “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian jetliner, killing all 176 people onboard.

The statement came on Saturday morning via state TV with “human error” blamed for the downing of the plane. The responsible parties would be held accountable, the statement read on state TV said, with the government offering its apologies to the victims’ families including those of foreign nationals.

The Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, wrote: “A sad day. Preliminary conclusions of internal investigation by armed forces: human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster. Our profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people, to the families of all victims, and to other affected nations.”

The responsible parties would be referred to a judicial department within the military and held accountable, the statement said.

No wage increases for Alberta nurses and teachers, arbitrators rule – CBC.ca

January 10th, 2020

Alberta’s teachers and nurses will not receive a wage increase in their current contracts, after two arbitration decisions were handed down Friday. 

The arbitration board decisions affect members of the United Nurses of Alberta (UNA)  and Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA). Both unions were in the final year of their contracts and were seeking wage increases, while the provincial government was seeking wage rollbacks.  

The UNA represents more than 30,000 members and the ATA has about 46,000 members.

“We’re obviously disappointed. We’ve already taken two years of zero and so we’re not keeping up with inflation,” said David Harrigan, director of labour relations with the UNA. 

Teachers have received zero wage increases in seven of the last eight years, said ATA president Jason Schilling. 

“Members are angry and frustrated,” Schilling said. “They were hoping for better and received this.

“They are being asked to do more and more within their classrooms with less, and then to turn around and see that their salaries are frozen yet again is extremely disappointing.”

The UNA’s provincial collective agreement is set to expire on March 31, 2020. The ATA’s agreement expires Aug. 31, 2020.

The provincial government had entered arbitration asking the UNA to take a three per cent wage rollback. The ATA was asked to accept a two per cent salary reduction. 

The arbitration board opted to freeze wages. 

“These independent public sector wage arbitration outcomes reflect the current economic realities in the province,” said Finance Minister Travis Toews, in a news release Friday.

“Even with these decisions, fiscal restraint and discipline must continue as we enter into new collective bargaining negotiations in 2020.”

The ATA will begin negotiations in March.

“The stakes are going to be higher than ever,” Schilling said. “Frankly, Alberta teachers are tired of having to pay for the continuing failure of successive governments to adequately fund public education.”

Negotiations between the UNA and the province will begin next week in Edmonton, said Harrigan.

Harrigan said the comments from Toews give him hope that the province will not be seeking to cut salaries this time around, he said. 

“If the Minister of Finance is stating today that zero is appropriate and meets the economic reality, then obviously we’re not expecting him to be proposing rollbacks,” said Harrigan.

Iran says it ‘unintentionally’ shot down Ukrainian jetliner due to ‘human error’ – The Globe and Mail

Iran announced Saturday that its military ‘unintentionally’ shot down a Ukrainian jetliner, killing all 176 aboard including at least 57 Canadians.

The admission was broadcast on Iran state TV, citing the Iranian military.

A military statement said the plane was mistaken for a “hostile target” after it turned toward a “sensitive military center” of the Revolutionary Guard. The military was at its “highest level of readiness,” it said, amid the heightened tensions with the United States.

“In such a condition, because of human error and in a unintentional way, the flight was hit,” the statement said.

It apologized for the disaster and said it would upgrade its systems to prevent such “mistakes” in the future.

The statement was a reversal of earlier statements from Iranian authorities denying a missile was to blame. Iran had earlier suggested mechanical failure was the cause.

Ukraine Airlines Flight 752 was en route to Kyiv on Wednesday when it crashed shortly after taking off from Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran. It crashed on the outskirts of Tehran just hours after Iran launched a barrage of missiles at U.S. forces.

Iran had denied for several days that a missile downed the aircraft.

But then the U.S. and Canada, citing intelligence, said they believe Iran shot down the aircraft. On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters he had seen intelligence from “multiple sources” indicating that “the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile” shortly after it took off.

Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne on Friday night said the number of Canadians killed was lowered to 57 from 63, citing updated information.

Iran’s about-face on the crash comes only one day after the head of the Iranian team investigating the disaster said publicly a missile was not to blame. Ali Abedzadeh, the head of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization, had then challenged Western governments to make their evidence public.

The news comes shortly after Canada had announced that countries that lost citizens in the crash had united to create a task force to share information and push for credible answers on what happened.

Mr. Champagne told reporters Friday night Ottawa is anxious to deploy officials on the ground, but that as of his Friday evening only two visas to enter Iran had been received. A team of 10 officials from the department of Global Affairs is standing by in Ankara, waiting for admission to Iran so they can help identify victims and provider consular services. As well, two Transportation Safety Board investigators are en route to Ankara, where they await permission to enter Iran to inspect the crash site and review evidence.

“There remains 10 visas that we need,” Mr. Champagne said.

He said the federal government is pushing for a more active role for the Canadian investigators so they can do more than observe in Tehran, including examining Flight 752’s black-box flight recorder. “I hope the government of Iran welcomes our offer.”

The Foreign Affairs Minister said the government is setting up an emergency task force to “ensure that the families and loved ones of the victims have the support they need.”

Ottawa is also establishing a dedicated program to help expedite visas for families of victims.

“In a way, we all know the victims of this crash: the colleague that made you laugh on Monday mornings, the professor who helped you become the person you are today, the friend you could always count on; the parent you admire; the child you watched grow up,” Mr. Champagne said.

“Losing them like this, unexpectedly and inexplicably, is devastating for each and every Canadian.”

It’s unclear whether evidence at the crash site will be available for perusal by international investigators. CBS News reported Friday that its team of journalists visited the site briefly and found very little debris was left from Wednesday’s crash, and people – “not officials, but apparent scavengers” – were poring over the scene looking for pieces to take away.

On Friday, Mr. Trudeau met in Toronto with families of the Flight 752 passengers. His office said the event was closed to media out of respect for the families.

On Friday morning, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed that the United States believes Iran shot down the Ukrainian airliner. He added that Canada is working to send its investigators to Iran.

“We do believe that it’s likely that that plane was shot down by an Iranian missile,” he said at the White House. “I was on the phone with my Canadian counterpart; they’re working to get their resources on the ground to conduct that thorough investigation.”

Mr. Pompeo was the first U.S. official to publicly confirm what Mr. Trudeau announced Thursday.

Earlier Friday, Mr. Pompeo spoke by phone with Mr. Champagne to offer U.S. help on the crash investigation, according to a summary of the call released by the State Department.

The plane crashed hours after Iran launched missile strikes at U.S. bases in Iraq. CBS has reported that U.S. intelligence officials believe Flight 752 was accidentally shot down by Iran’s missile-defence system, which had been switched on to guard against U.S. retaliation.

The New York Times, citing unnamed American officials, reported this week that evidence for the missile strike included intelligence gathered from intercepted calls.

Reuters news agency has cited an unnamed U.S. official who, referring to an extensive review of satellite data, said the flight had been tracked by Iranian radar before it came under attack. The data showed that the Boeing 737 bound for Kyiv was airborne for two minutes after departing Tehran when the heat signatures of two surface-to-air missiles were detected, the official said. That was quickly followed by an explosion in the vicinity of the plane. Heat-signature data then showed the plane on fire as it went down.

Mr. Abedzadeh said the black boxes, which record flight data as well as cockpit conversations, were damaged in the disaster, but it was still possible to analyze the data they contained.

Iran had previously said that it would not hand over the black boxes, but Hassan Rezaeifar, the head of the committee that oversees aviation accidents in Iran, said Friday that his country could need foreign help to extract the data.

He said the country could ask for help from Russia, France, Ukraine or Canada.

Mr. Abedzadeh said officials from all the countries who lost citizens in the crash – as well as officials from the U.S. and France, as the countries of origin for the Boeing plane and its engine – would be invited to “oversee” the Iranian investigation.
