- Now we have arranged an interview with this operator, which will be released soon as part of the plan to publicize the issue. He says in this interview that “we requested for several times that the country’s airspace be cleared of [civilian] flights.’ At the Alert Level 3, this is normal; such requests are made; well our dear brothers didn’t follow up the issue for certain considerations. So the planes fly despite the wartime situation.

- Noted, this version of events essentially takes everything in the Western version as truth without doubting it or taking on board anything from the Iranian presentation, or allowing that the video may be fake, and tries to pull it off. There are several problems with it, eg there is so far no physical evidence that the plane was hit by two missiles, and trajectory and other details are in dispute. BC geolocation of impact (12 km from Bidkaneh) or anywhere on the flightradar trajectory is over 8 km from the launch to impact, thus missile engine at impact is off and missile is not visible. With Iranian trajectory, it appears nobody would be there to film this (though Iranian map details are not well seen). Flightradar would interpolate if signal is not received for whatever reason and trajectory seen there (as well as the Iranian claim) needs verification.
- Noted: The author suggests a launch location which bears no resemblance with the Iranian version of the launch.

- Noted, considerably more speculative (and less technically sound) of the two articles. MH17 belongs elsewhere. Video may be as fake as the photo, it remains to be clarified. As for optical observation, operator may fail to relate radar and optical observations in the short time to make a decision, or not using it altogether in the belief that civilian aircrafts were grounded, etc. Fakes could be produced rather quickly by professionals, for a variety of reasons, including pressuring for public admission but yet withdrawing detailed intelligence.

Acting Russian FM Lavrov: But there is information that after this attack, the Iranians expected another US strike, did not know in what form, but in the airspace right on the Iranian border there were at least six F-35 fighters. This is information that is subject to double-checking. But I want to emphasize the nervousness that is always present in such situations. (as robo-translated).
