New video shows that not one but two Iranian missiles has hit the Ukrainian Boeing 737

Submitted
Security camera video shows for the first time that Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752 was struck by two missiles fired from an Iranian military site about eight miles away, according to a report. The New York Times reported that it has verified the footage, which helps explain why the Boeing 737-800’s transponder stopped working seconds before it was struck by a second missile.

Amazing, Iran admits to lieing. If only our MSM were as ethical.

Well, I guess if you try very hard, you could conclude it was ethical to admit. But then again, when 176 people are shot out of the sky by your own missiles, and in clear view of, I don't know, millions?, it's a tad difficult to deny.

Does this tragedy qualify as an assassination, or merely murder of innocent lives? It's interesting the NYT chose to "verify the footage" in lieu of the usual knee-jerk posting of opinions, feelings and hearsay by so-called journalist and unnamed confidential sources.

Your rebuttal reinforces the maxim; it's easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.

Most security cameras are fixed in place. Why does this one keep moving around ? Or, is it a video of a video ?

It's cell phone video of video from a security camera being played back on a computer monitor. You can see the frame of the screen as the person filming moves the cell phone around. You can even see their reflection in the monitor screen.

I don't think it was a security camera at all, but after the first person was arrested, this person wants to remain a "secret", it seems.

WTF is going on with the world these days. We are all so troubled. Iran didn't lie. The plane had severe mechanical issues just after the fing SAM hit it!

A very interesting article explaining how the Iranian Tor-M1 system could have been hacked into >> https://www.sott.net/article/427303-Was-Iranian-Missile-Operator-Tricked-Into-Shooting-Down-The-Ukrainian-Airlines-Plane-Over-Tehran Since there is no way that Iran shot down the jet on purpose this article provides the only reasonable explanations for the "mistake". It is interesting to note that in 2012 Wikileaks revealed that Russia gave Israel the codes for the Tor-M1 missile system so Israel had the technical ability to "spoof" the system and bring down the jet and of course they had the motive . As always the first question should be cui bono? Who benefited from the shoot down of the jet? It sure wasn't Iran!

Looking at this video, I am willing to bet more than 2 were fired at it. The first 2 missing and finally a 3rd one hitting it (the big fireball around 1:20). The first video (that was shot in portrait) was the result of seeing at least one, if not the first 2 missiles shot at it. When one thinks about it, how would anyone know where to point their camera without something attracting the camera person's interest?

As far as the date on the monitor in which the second phone camera footage is caught, how many of you set the date on your VCR or your TV, DVD player or own security cameras or dash cams? I had a dash cam that lost time every day and could be hours off from the actual time.

Except whatever the first 2 were shot at was moving in a left to right direction. A missile hits a fuel laden passenger jet and it's an instant fireball dropping. And at the 1:20 mark, just before the fireball, appears 2 hits BUT no missile plume from a fired missile, as seen from first 2. PLUS it is heading in a right to left posture.

As for the date time stamp, this was not a VCR, and security and dash cams better have correct date/time. (of course this is in Iran so who knows)

And explains why there clould be more than 2 missiles. In the first video, the plane is moving right to left and the missle going left to right. In the above video, the missiles come from the right and traverse left. Then the fireball around 1:20 we see is what appears to be a third small fireball coming from the left then at 1:36 (the plane exploding) is going from right to left, just like in the first video.

I would think the first one missed. Because you see a missile explode in the middle of the night and no secondary explosion probably means it missed. Thus, the second launch. It probably missed a little closer, that's why it took longer for the shrapnel to take effect. And, it doesn't appear that the aircraft broke up. Been awhile since I've been there, but "that's my story...."
Borzislav
Why is the date in the video October 17 *2019*???
rapidwolve
rapidwolve 2
Something is fishy about the whole video..watch it carefully at the beginning with the 2 missiles, supposedly fired at the jet, yet object being fired at, moving left to right..no fireball and drop from sky 1 would expect after getting nailed by 2 SAM's.
Then about the 1:20 mark watch just to the left of the 1/2 way point on the screen..2 what look like explosions, but not from missiles, followed by a fireball...and where did the 2019 date stamp display go?

I saw in one report that they were using the Persian calendar.
Borzislav
In Persian calendar 2020 = 1398, so it's definitely not related to calendars...

Normally I'd give the NYT's verification of anything short schrift, but in this case they seem credible.

Wonder if they caught the crew at the SAM site yelling "Allahu Akbar!!"with their perfecta?

It's important to be at least a little skeptical of the claims by the NYT that they authenticated this. All we know for certain from this video is that two missiles are launched and two detonated. We can't see what they were fired at, or what they hit, and we can't know when the video was taken.

I'm not saying to doubt the NYT claims. Just be a little bit skeptical. I remember when Dan Rather and CBS News said they authenticated the obvious fake letters from the Memogate scandal at that network.

I have seen missiles attack unmanned "drone aircraft" and they usually cause it to become a fireball after the second hit. That plus the 2 missiles, that detonate, did so to the left, then a bit further right, which indicates whatever was hit was traveling left to right. Why is the aircraft fireball moving right to left? Be interesting to see an actual time stamp.
What I do know is we lost people we know on that flight, so they best come up with answers why, real fast, not this "oh we are sorry it was an accident" crap!

Maybe you should fact check yourself before yakking. It was an international, not just the US, agreement that would limit Iran and their nuclear capability. NOW, however, they can build nuclear and no one is the wiser!

In general, you seem to be a very intelligent person. Please, however, tell me that your account has not been hacked or you really that are dumb.

I can rest easy at night knowing that Iran can't do a thing without our nation knowing. Oh, oddly, I am close friends with one of the (former) hostages who were released when Reagan was heading into office....the reality and the "News" do not tend to meet at a common point.

Zionist Israel hacked into the electronics on Ukraine FLT 752 turning off its transponder, communications and all lights making it appear as a cruise missile - knowing that Iran's mobile Russian made TOR missile system would see it as FOE and not Friendly. MOSSAD: "By deception thou shall do war." After the fact, Iran realized it was a case of mistaken identity. 176 people dead because of the initiation of an ACT OF WAR by Trump in murdering/assassinating Iranian General Soleimani and the resultant fog of war and the complicit electronic-hacking-sabotage of FLT PS752 by Zionist Israel and Likud Party Terrorist Benjamin Netahyahu. Both Trump and Netanyahu should be charged with and convicted of WAR CRIMES at the International Court in the Hague. NO MORE WARS FOR ISRAEL!

Also, Prof. E. Michael Jones of Culture Wars.com has insight into this entire debacle.

What a stupid video. 2 rockets hit the plane at about the same altitude no explosion of the airplane full of fuel. So the airplane kept its altitude after being hit by a rocket and actually the second rocket hits it higher.
