MEK Iran: Rouhani Knew about Ukraine Plane Downing and Covered It up
Ukrainian TV station TSN broadcast an audio file that proves the Iranian Regime not only shot down a Ukrainian plane on January 8, killing all 176 civilians onboard but also that they knew about it from the very beginning.
The evidence comes from a conversation between a co-pilot on Aseman Airlines flight 3768, who was landing at Tehran’s airport, and the control tower, at the same time that Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752 was shot by the two missiles and crashed out of the sky.
The Iranian co-pilot asks if the flight area is safe, saying he can see “some lights, [that] look like missiles” before asking “Is something happening?”
And this proves that President Hassan Rouhani and other top regime officials knew about the incident almost instantaneously.
After all, the control tower is managed by the Civil Aviation Organization (CAO), which is part of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, and all of these departments answer to Rouhani. Are we expected to believe that no one passed this information up the chain of command?
The disclosure of the audio makes it clear that the control tower, and by extension the #Iran regime’s authorities, had been immediately informed of the shooting down of the Ukrainian passenger jethttps://t.co/hRD7heLk7n#FreeIran2020 #MEK #UkranianPlaneCrash @USAdarFarsi pic.twitter.com/knA0PqGOot

Rouhani then made the families of the victims suffer for three days, trying to blame plane manufacturer Boeing, before finally being forced to admit responsibility when the US provided video evidence of the crash. Even when he admitted that the regime shot down the plane, supposedly mistaking it for ann incoming missie just minutes after it took off, he claimed he wasn’t aware that Iran was responsible until the morning of January 11.
It should be noted here that this contradicts statements by Rouhani’s spokesperson, Ali Rabiee, who said they knew on January 10, and Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the Aerospace Force commander, who said they knew on January 8.
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) wrote: “These facts once again prove that the regime’s top official, like [Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei and Rouhani, were intending to misguide the international community and decline to answer for their crime against humanity via staging an orchestrated campaign of lies and fabrications.”
While NCRI President Maryam Rajavi said: “[This] major crime perpetrated by the clerical regime, which the Iranian people will neither forgive, nor forget. The main culprits are Khamenei, Rouhani, and IRGC commanders, who must be prosecuted and punished for this horrific crime.”

After the regime admitted responsibility, Iranians poured into the streets to hold nationwide protests, targeting the regime, calling Rouhani and Khamenei liars, and expressing their desire for the overthrow of the regime.
