"For our people it is very important in this incident that whoever was at fault or negligent at any level" faces justice, he said.

In response, Iran launched ballistic missiles on military bases housing USA troops in Iraq to avenge Soleimani's killing.

Over the weekend, throngs of protesters took to the streets of Tehran to express anger over the plane shootdown, which claimed the lives of 130 Iranian nationals who were among those on board.

Meanwhile, Iran's judiciary spokesman Gholam Hossein said that "some persons" were arrested for their role in bringing down the plane, without specifying details.

Iran will punish all those responsible for the accidental shooting down of a Ukrainian passenger plane, President Hassan Rouhani said in a televised speech on Tuesday, adding that the "tragic event" would be investigated thoroughly. "This is not a normal case and the whole world will follow the case in our court".

Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday that while US policies toward the Islamic Republic were the root cause of the mistake, that didn't excuse Iranian officials from confronting their own responsibility in the disaster.

This is the first video that appears to show two missiles take down the plane.

The resolution, companion to one that passed the Democratic-led House of Representatives last week, would block President Donald Trump from further military action against Iran without congressional authorization.

"Once you start to cope with the sorrow a little bit, then came the tragic news that it was downed by a missile, and it was nearly as if she died again", Amirali Alavi said. It denied those allegations but acknowledged seizing a British-flagged oil tanker in response to the impounding of an Iranian oil tanker by authorities in Gibraltar.

The individual who posted a video online showing Iran shot down a Ukrainian jetliner has been arrested by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, according to a new report. Soleimani had led the elite Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in operations throughout the region over the past 20 years, backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and supporting Shiite militia groups in Iraq, including against USA troops during the Iraq War.

He added that the global community has been "very, very clear about needing to have a non-nuclear Iran" but also in "managing the tensions in the region that are brought about by USA actions as well".

Iran shot down the plane as its forces were on alert for possible USA retaliation after Iran launched ballistic missiles on two military bases housing US troops in Iraq. Iran's retaliatory attack came after President Donald Trump ordered a US drone strike to take out Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani on January 3, a controversial decision that has been condemned by Democrats and some Republicans in Washington. According to the last census, there were 210,000 Canadians of Iranian origin living in this country in 2016.

The Canadian leader said those who died when the aircraft was downed by an Iranian missile could have been "right now home with their families" if it was not for escalating tensions in the region.

Amid a heavy security presence in Tehran, protests broke out on several university campuses on Tuesday, as they have daily since the government admitted that the plane had been shot down. "It was the USA that created an unusual situation".
