Iranian Military Now Claims US ‘Cyberattack’ Brought Down Passenger Plane

As new video shows 2nd missile striking plane, Iran blames “enemy sabotage”

The Iranian military is now blaming the US (again) for the downing of Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752, after it admitted that IRGC commanders shot the plane out of the sky last week, and in the wake of a new video emerging showing a SECOND missile was fired at the civilian airliner.

Iran Guardian Council chairman Ahmad Jannati stated Wednesday that “enemy sabotage” cannot be ruled out, while Brigadier General Ali Abdollahi directly suggested that US military forces hacked Iran’s radar systems to make it appear that the airliner, containing 176 people, was an incoming missile.

Abdollahi also seemed to suggest that the US military hackers could have actually shot down the plane as part of a cyber attack to make Iran look bad, according to the report.

After initially claiming “mechanical error” caused the plane to crash, then admitting they shot it down ‘by mistake’ after evidence of a missile strike could no longer be denied, Iran has now pivoted back to directly blaming the US.

There is no evidence that the US took any military or other action in Iran on the evening the airliner was struck.

Iran’s flip-flopping comes after intense protests over the airliner downing and attempted cover-up, and the emergence of a new video showing a second ‘kill shot’ missile was fired, throwing the ‘mistake’ explanation into serious doubt.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani also accused the US Wednesday of being responsible for the plane strike, saying that “The root of all sorrows goes back to America … this cannot be a reason for us not to look into all the root causes.”

He added that “One cannot believe that a passenger plane is struck near an international airport while flying in a [commercial] flight channel,” after previously saying that IRGC commanders were not the only ones involved in the plane downing, noting that “There were others, too.”

The Iranian parliament also stated that “we are in powerful confrontation with the criminal US and do not allow a mistake… to pave the ground for misusing the issue by the enemies.”

The Iranian judiciary also announced Tuesday that they have arrested numerous individuals in connection with the missile strike, claiming that one of the people in detention is believed to have filmed the missile strike and the plane crashing to the earth.

Tasnim News Agency, which is close to the Revolutionary Guard, reported that the person is being held in an effort “to probe the factors involved in the incident”.

However, Nariman Gharib, a UK journalist who first published the footage on his Twitter account says the person who shot the footage is actually “in a safe place”:

Washington residents worried after confirmed case in Seattle; Man treated by ROBOT

Search engine requests for ‘virus mask’ have exploded as panic begins to set in regarding the deadly coronavirus, which experts have warned could lead to a global pandemic.

The spike is comparable to those registered during other major virus outbreaks:

The searches for “virus mask” are most prevalent in Singapore, China, Macao, Hong Kong, and the Philippines.

Other related searches are exploding:

Statistics also show that in the US, people in Washington, Hawaii, California, the District of Columbia, and Massachusetts are the ones doing the most googling:

Cases of the killer virus have not only been reported in China but also in Singapore, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam.

A suspected case is being investigated in Texas, while The CDC has confirmed a traveler from China has been diagnosed in Seattle.

CNN reports that the man arrived to hospital in an ISOPOD and is being treated largely by a robot, in an effort to avoid any spread of the virus:

There are also several potential cases in the UK, prompting the government to call an emergency meeting.

Several frightening videos purporting to show victims of the virus have emerged, including people dropping dead in the street and a man being wheeled away in a giant quarantine box:

WTF Is This?

Bizarre footage has emerged of a man in China, suspected of having the killer coronavirus, being wheeled away to a fate unknown in some kind of huge quarantine box.

The footage shows a man dressed in a hazmat suit, mask and gloves being transported to an ambulance outside the airport in the city of Fuzhou in south-eastern China.

This all seems perfectly normal, right?

Reports continue to suggest that the deadly coronavirus is out of control in China, and an attempted cover up is underway.

Entire cities are in lockdown and more footage has emerged of people dropping dead in the streets.

As we highlighted yesterday, a biosafety level 4 laboratory that studies the “world’s most dangerous pathogens” is based in Wuhan, leading some to speculate whether the virus was accidentally released.

However, officials say the source of the outbreak was an illegal animal market in Wuhan which sold bats and snakes.

Government calls emergency COBRA meeting

The British government has called an emergency meeting after medical experts warned that it is ‘highly likely’ that the deadly super-bug has already reached UK shores.

The Cobra contingencies committee convened at the Cabinet Office in London, where Health Secretary Matt Hancock told press that “the clinical advice is that the risk to the public remains low and the chief medical officer will be making a full statement later today.”

Dr Paul Cosford, Director of Health Protection, noted that several suspected cases of the virus, which originated in China, are still ongoing with results expected today.

Speaking on BBC radio, Cosford said “There are no positive cases in the UK as yet, but we will go on testing and those numbers will of course change.”

“I think it’s highly likely that we will have cases in the UK, and of course every so often we do get new infections coming from the animal kingdom such as this one.” he added.

According to a BBC report, a total of 14 people have been tested in the UK, with nine people awaiting results and five getting the all clear.

The head of infection medicine at the University of Edinburgh, Professor Jurgen Haas, confirmed that four people in Scotland have exhibited symptoms of the virus.

Haas told the Press Association: “The situation will be pretty similar in pretty much all UK cities with a large number of Chinese students.

“It’s not too surprising. My suspicion is that there will probably be many more cases in many other cities in the UK.” Haas added.

Meanwhile, in the US, officials at the Brazos County Health District in Texas said Thursday they are investigating a suspected case of the virus in a student at Texas A&M University.
