Video purportedly shows Iranian missile hitting Ukraine airliner before crash

A 19-second video posted online and reportedly verified by The New York Times claims to show an Iranian missile striking Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, shortly before it crashed on Wednesday, killing all 176 people on board — including 63 Canadians.

The New York Times says the video shows the missile striking the Boeing 737-800 above Parand, which is located close to Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport.

Filmed vertically, the video shows a bright flash of light in the sky in the first three seconds. A few seconds later, a loud bang can be heard.

“A small explosion occurred when a missile hit the plane, but the plane did not explode, the video showed,” according to the Times report.

Global News has not verified the video. The footage was shared by Nariman Gharib, who said he received it from a source.
