Anti-government protests are continuing in Iran against the destruction of Ukrainian passenger planes, and protesters are demanding the resignation of top government officials, including punishment for the incident.
According to British media, protests continue in other cities of the country, including the Iranian capital Tehran. Protesters chanted anti-government slogans during the protest, while there were reports of clashes with security forces in which tear gas was used by the forces.
Ukraine’s Boeing 737 passenger plane was destroyed shortly after flying from Iran’s Imam Khomeini airport on January 8, killing 176 people, including 82 Iranian nationals, on staff.
Later, Iran denied it several times after admitting that the plane was mistakenly targeted. Iran has also agreed to pay compensation to the relatives of passengers killed in a plane crash.
According to Iranian local media, the head of the central insurance company Ghulam Raza Sulaimani said that the Ukrainian Airliner was destroyed due to human error and the government would cooperate with the victims to pay them.
