“There is complete coordination between our air defense and civil aviation systems. Civil aviation and air defense personnel are sitting side by side, so such a thing as a missile strike on an aircraft is absolutely impossible, ”Abedzadeh said on Iranian television.

“We can say with confidence that the missile did not hit this plane. The liner burned for more than a minute and a half during the flight, the pilots decided to return. There can be many reasons why they were unable to contact. First of all, they had to save the plane, ”he added.
