Bad things happen when an air defense network is on "shoot at everything hostile on sight" fire watch. Iran was mobilizing for war, as were we.Had initially thought the plane went down shortly after coming across the Iran border. Flying into Iranian airspace. The fact that the plane was (apparently) shot down as it took off from the Tehran airport in Central Iran is just bizarre.
What the fuck could the person have been thinking who gave that order? And as you note....that individual may no longer be with us. RIP.
Iran is still responsible for what happened, but the plane should have never been allowed to take off in the first place.
