Maryam Rajavi: Downing of passenger jet is a major crime that people will neither forgive nor forget

Khamenei, Rouhani, IRGC commanders are main culprits and must be prosecuted and punished

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), repeated her condolences to the families of the victims and to the people of Iran. She added this was another major crime by the religious fascism ruling Iran, which the people of Iran will neither forgive, nor forget. The mullahs had given advance warning about the missile attack on Iraqi soil to the Iraqi regime and military and through them to the U.S. according to the regime’s foreign minister. But in a stark mark of culpable negligence, it refrained from ordering the cancellation of all commercial flights, whereas all around the world, such flights are canceled immediately at times of military conflict and air defense alert.

Mrs. Rajavi said Khamenei, Rouhani and the IRGC commanders were the main culprits and must be prosecuted and punished for this great crime. She underscored that even now the regime is deceptively trying to help the main culprits in this disaster evade responsibility by making ridiculous excuses.

MARYAM RAJAVI PRESIDENT-ELECT OF THE NCRI WROTE ON TWITTER:

Regime’s forced admission to shooting down the Ukrainian airliner that killed all the passengers is another great crime, which the Iranian people will neither forgive nor forget.
The regime had given advance warning about its missile attack on American bases to the Iraqi government and its military and through them to the US. But did not issue any advance notice to our compatriots and did not cancel passenger flights.

The death and destruction in Syria and Iraq, daily terrorist bombings with high casualties, the war in Yemen, and hundreds of terrorist operations by the Quds Force across the world were planned and directed by Qasem Soleimani.
