Jayakartapos,  Some 176 people died after a Boeing 737 crashed on 8 January near Tehran shortly after takeoff. The incident occurred shortly after Iran targeted American facilities in Erbil and the Ayn al-Asad Air Base in Iraq.

An investigation into the deadly Boeing 737 crash that claimed the lives of 176 people is in full swing amid conflicting reports on what caused the tragedy.

Iran insists that the plane crash occurred due to a technical error. Several other nations, including the US, UK, and Canada (who lost nationals in the tragedy) are not ruling out the possibility of a missile attack.

Ukraine, whose citizens were also among the victims, says the reports that the plane was downed remain unconfirmed.
