Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the Canadian government has information that Iran shot down the Ukrainian plane on Wednesday:

“We have intelligence from multiple sources including our allies and our own intelligence: the evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile,” he told reporters in Ottawa Thursday.

“This may well have been unintentional,” he added.

Mr. Trudeau said this information “reinforces the need for a thorough investigation into this matter.”

The majority of people on the flight – 138 – were heading to Canada, and at least 63 were Canadian citizens.

The Boeing 737 went down a few hours after Iran attacked Iraqi military bases hosting the American military.
