Also that the attack was accidental. This is all based on analysis of data from satellites, radar and electronic sources routinely collected by US military and intelligence.

A US official familiar with this intel says the US saw Iranian radar signals lock onto the jetliner before it came down. A video also appears to show a missile being fired into the Tehran sky, striking an object.

And Canada and the UK say they have intelligence that shows an Iranian missile was responsible.
