The shooting down of the plane happened in the same night that the Islamic Republic's missiles, American soldiers, attacks took place in Iraq in the crosshairs. This was in retaliation for a previous drone attack by the Americans in Baghdad, during which the high-ranking Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was killed.

The report went on for several moments, in which the Downing of the flight PS752 could have been prevented. The anti-aircraft missile system had been transferred from one place to another, and then not been properly aligned. In addition, the responsible soldiers would not be able to communicate on the shield with your command center. You have identified the passenger plane by mistake as a threat and twice fired, without the permission of higher officers. Without these situations "would not have been targeted the plane as a target," it said in the report.
