NEW YORK - The "New York Times" has published security camera footages that show what seems to be the Ukrainian plane being hit by two missiles.

It is not clear what part of the plane was hit by the first missile but flames could be seen and the transponder stopped working. The second missile was fired about 23 secondes later and hit the plane before it crashed.

Iran admits that it unintentionally shot down the Ukrainian plane. It seems that the missiles involved were SA 15 Russian made missiles.
