Donald Trump Tweets in Persian to Pump Up Iranian Protests

Iranian officials on Saturday acknowledged that they accidentally shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane after it took off Wednesday from Tehran's worldwide airport.

The aircraft was shot down accidentally by an Iranian missile moments after taking off from Tehran airport Wednesday; all 176 on board were killed, including 138 who were headed for Canada.

Iran, after all, does not recognize dual citizenship.

"The police did not shoot at the gatherings at all because a restraint order (had been issued) for police in the capital".

However, the semi-official Fars news agency reported that police had "shot tear gas in some areas".

In a tweet Monday afternoon Internet watchdog Netblocks said a drop in internet connectivity was registered at Sharif University in Tehran from 11:50 UTC where students have been protesting, but national connectivity remains stable despite sporadic disruptions on third day of #Iran protests. Videos posted online showed demonstrators running from police who used batons and teargas.

Video footage sent to the Center for Human rights in Iran, verified by the Associated Press, showed the aftermath of the incident with protesters fleeing the scene and one woman apparently was shot in the leg.

"Otherwise, Iran Air has to take alternate flights to transport its passengers", the Iranian airliner said. On Saturday - after USA intelligence said evidence indicated it was shot down by a missile and several denials by Tehran - the Iranian government finally acknowledged the true cause.

US President Donald Trump warned Iran Sunday against killing protesters who have risen up over the regime's downing of a civilian airliner as his defense secretary left the door open to talks with Tehran without preconditions. "Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching", he posted on Twitter.

Lord Lamont also said the protests were a "very sharp turn" from previous signs of unity between the Iranian public and regime shown after the assassination of Major-General Qassem Soleimani on January 3.

He told reporters last week that Canadian officials had been standing by in Ankara, waiting for admission to Iran to help identify victims and provide consular services. His voice breaking, Trudeau told the vigil he would "pursue justice and accountability" for the victims.

"We want to assure all families and all Canadians that we will not rest until there are answers".

Another seven consular officials, as well as two investigators from the Transportation Safety Board are now in Ankara, Turkey awaiting their travel documents.

That same day, the U.K.'s ambassador to Iran, Rob Macaire, was briefly arrested near a demonstration in Tehran.

No U.S. soldiers were killed in the retaliatory attacks.

President Hassan Rouhani promised a "thorough investigation" into the air disaster in a telephone call with Sweden's Prime Minister Stefan Lofven on Sunday night, his office said.

He also praised Revolutionary Guards Aerospace Commander Brig-Gen Amir Ali Hajizadeh for his "honest" and "bold" acknowledgement that his forces were responsible for the tragedy.

Iran's authorities summoned him on Sunday, while members of the hardline Basij militia gathered outside the mission holding signs demanding the "treacherous embassy" be closed, state-affiliated media reported.
