Prior to the takeoff of the crashed Ukrainian passenger plane on January 8, a Canadian student among the victims posted a very strange tweet on Twitter, which is imaginative. Another female victim called her husband 20 minutes before departure, when she was very anxious.
In the early morning of January 8, local time, the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards fired 15 ballistic missiles at two bases in the US and coalition forces in Iraq in retaliation for the assassination of US Holy Army brigade commander Suleimani. On the same morning, a Ukrainian International Airlines Boeing 787 crashed shortly after taking off from Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran, Iran, killing all 176 people on board. According to Arab Satellite TV, the dead include a doctoral student at the University of Toronto, Canada. He tweeted a very weird tweet a few hours before the plane crashed and it was imaginative.
It is reported that the doctoral student who died was an Iranian citizen named Mojtaba Abbasnezhad and was visiting his family in Tehran. He posted on his personal Twitter account a few hours before the plane took off saying "Before my flight took off, I had expected this to be a war if you heard or saw good or bad news about me ,Please forgive me."
Some analysts believe that the war described by Abbasnetzad probably refers to an attack by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards on Iraqi U.S. and coalition forces a few hours before the flight.
According to a report from CNN on the 9th, in addition to Mojtababa Abbasezade, a Canadian female passenger who was killed was very worried before the plane took off.
According to Sheyda Shadkhoo, the husband of the female passenger who died, his wife called him 20 minutes before the plane took off and wanted him to assure her that everything would be fine. Sheida Shadhoo told the media: "I talked to her ... 20 minutes before the plane took off, she wanted me to assure her that there would be no war. I told her not to worry. She finally said: 'Okay, They asked me to shut down and goodbye '". Shaydad Shadhoo said his wife seemed to have foreseen the plane was about to crash and she was worried about the people still at the airport. He said his wife expressed her fear by sending a selfie on social platforms before leaving Iran.
Iranian state television claimed that Ukraine International Airlines' Boeing 737 crashed for "technical reasons". However, before the crash, Iran launched a ballistic missile attack on US and coalition bases in Iraq, so there are rumors on the Internet that the passenger plane was shot down by the missile. However, Iran quickly clarified this. Iranian Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohamed Eslami pointed out that there were rumors that the cause of the crash might be a terrorist attack, an explosion or a shooting, but this was not the case. The cause of this incident was a technical failure. If the rumor is true, the aircraft must have exploded in the air, but this did not happen because the aircraft caught fire due to a technical failure. This first caused its communication and control systems to stop working, and subsequently caused it to crash.
The Ukrainian ambassador to Iran also said that preliminary investigations have ruled out the possibility of the passenger plane being shot down or being attacked by terrorists. The real cause of the crash was an engine failure. But later in the day, the Ukrainian ambassador to Iran modified the statement of the crash, saying that the cause of the accident would be announced by the investigative committee, and any previous statement had no effect.
