The victims include 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians, 10 Swedes, 4 Afghans, 3 Britons, and 3 Germans.

UIA said that the Boeing 737-800 was built in 2016 and had its last scheduled maintenance on January 6, 2020.

Initial statements suggested that the cause of the crash was due to a possible engine failure. No emergency had been declared on the plane.

The incident occured hours before a series of missile attacks from Iran targeting air bases housing US forces in Iraq.
