Ukrainian Plane Crashes In Iran, 176 People Dead

Seems like we just cant get away from the tumultuous events that have been taking place lately. As if 2020 hasn’t already hit us surprise deaths and killings…a Ukrainian airplane carrying 176 passengers and crew crashed shortly after taking off from Tehran’s airport on Tuesday morning. Everyone on board died, skidding into farmland turning into burning flames.

The crash came hours after Iran launched a barrage of  15 ballistic missiles on Iraqi bases housing American and coalition soldiers. Iranian officials said they suspect a mechanical issue brought down the Boeing 737-800 aircraft. They later denied this sentiment and declined to claim a cause while the investigation is still happening.
