The Iranian government approved on Wednesday (12/30/2020) that relatives be paid $ 150,000 for each of the 176 victims of the Ukrainian plane mistakenly shot down on January 8 by the Guardians of the Revolution in Iran’s airspace.
The Ukranian International Airlines (UIA) Boeing 737 with 176 people on board was inadvertently downed with a missile on January 8, 2020 by the Iranian armed forces shortly after it took off from Tehran airport bound for Kiev.
The report of the Civil Aviation Organization points out that the shot was caused by a chain of errors, which included an incorrect alignment of the air defense system, a faulty communication between the operator and the coordination center, and the identification of the plane as a threat.
The shootdown came at a time when Tehran was on alert for a possible US attack in retaliation for the Iranian bombing of a base in Iraq with US troops, which was carried out in revenge for the assassination days before of Iranian General Qasem Soleimaní
