Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier claimed the evidence showed Iranian military involvement. His remarks came after reports quoted senior U.S. Defense and Intelligence officials, who said the plane was hit by an anti-aircraft missile system.

“We have intelligence from multiple sources, including our allies and our own intelligence,” stated Trudeau. “The evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.”

President Trump has also said he does not believe mechanical failure caused the Ukrainian jet to crash. On Thursday, he said the plane was flying in a pretty rough neighborhood and somebody could have made a mistake.

“At some point, they’ll release the black box,” he said. “I have a feeling that something very terrible happened.”
