Are there any possible target sites in the vicinity of where the aircraft was hit, assuming/speculating a possible missile strike?
I thought the same.
One single western missile hitting one single Ukrainian airliner at 630am with nothing else hit or launched by the west. I'd give it about a 0.00% chance.
Well given this happened about 45 minutes after an Iranian missile attack on American military bases in Iraq is there not a possibility this is not a retaliatory shot back at a target close to the capital, a warning shot that went wrong?
Someone above mentioned that the aircraft was close to an Iranian military installation, I don’t think it should be ruled out yet that this could have been a warning shot gone wrong if that is the case.
An attempted show of power by taking out a military installation right beside the capital that accidentally hit an airliner?
