BREAKING: Ukrainian Airlines Plane Carrying 180 Passengers Crashes after takeoff from Tehran, Iran
An Ukrainian Airlines plane carrying 180 passengers and crew crashed tonight just minutes ago after takeoff from Tehran, Iran!
This comes on the same night that Iran fired a dozen missiles at US bases in Iraq.

There is video of the crash already posted on Twitter.
Why would anyone fly out of Tehran after the mullahs just fired missiles at US targets in the neighboring country?
Here is the FlightRadar24 info on the Ukrainian passenger jet that crashed shortly after takeoff. My question is… why was a plane with 180 passengers taking off from Tehran in the midst of the chaos? And what were the "technical difficulties" that caused it to crash? pic.twitter.com/nsx21HLlhw
