The tragic incident came just hours after Tehran fired missiles at two military bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq in retaliation for the killing of a top Iranian military official. What is also of concern is that Iranian defences failed to distinguish between a hostile and commercial aircraft, or mistook the plane for a missile. The overall level of unrest is hard to assess because of restrictions on independent reporting.
The demonstrations started after the Iranian military said that they were responsible for taking down the Ukrainian passenger airline.

"He also said that ultimately it's the U.S. that's responsible for the heightened level of tension, again referring to Trump's threat to target 52 sites but added that this isn't an excuse for the military and other people", Baig said.
"I think if there were no tensions, if there was no escalation recently in the region, those Canadians would be right now home with their families", Trudeau told Global News TV.
