As many here have stated and I speculated before on another thread, I think the Iranian Air Defense Force must have been on high alert yesterday and readied for an American counterattack after they launched their ballistic missiles. That they might have fired a SAM at the jet by accident in the fog of war is not outside the realm of possibility.
    Felis Leo et al.:

    The investigations are underway and eventually we will learn what happened. In the meantime, let the professionals do their work undisturbed and uninfluenced by the storm of politics surrounding this crash.

    RIP to those who lost their lives and deepest sympathies to those who have survived these departed loved ones.

    I don't believe in a coincidence and apparently neither does Ukraine. A jumbo cargo plane departed for Iran with Search and Rescue (SAR) teams, Boeing 737-800NG maintenance specialists, forensic crash experts, and military personnel familiar with Iranian/Russian anti-air weapon systems.

    You don’t shoot down civilian planes by mistake.
    Iran is not that stupid. The plane was leaving Iran. The military knows which commercial planes are entering and leaving the country. Unlikely the plane was damaged by a missile.

    Says who?

    The US shot down Iran Air Flight 655 on 3 July 1988 killing all 290 on board.

    A Russian Buk missile crew shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine on 17 July 2014 killing all 298 on board.
