Iran remembers anniv. of US attack on passenger plane

Iran marks the 26th anniversary of the killing of 290 people in a US missile cruiser’s attack on an passenger plane in 1988.

On 1988 July 3, 290 people were killed in a US missile cruiser’s attack on an Iranian passenger plane.

Carrying 274 passengers and 16 crew members, the Airbus A-300 (IR655) had just taken off from the southern Iranian coastal city of Bandar Abbas and was climbing inside an internationally recognized route to Dubai when it was targeted by two Standard missiles fired from USS Vincennes on July 3, 1988

Following the incident, US officials claimed their warship mistook the jetliner for an attacking Iranian F-14 fighter plane. The allegation was made as highly sophisticated radar systems and electronic battle gear had been mounted on the warship.

The US government has so far refused to admit to its crime in the tragic incident and instead keeps falsely blaming Iran for the incident.
