Iranian Judiciary Chief, Ebrahim Rayeesi, acknowledged the only solution to end the US’ evil acts is to expel the Americans from the region while highlighting the fact that threatening aviation security and hostility against a passenger airliner is a manifestation of violation of international laws.
The aggressive move against Iran’s passenger plane is a clear violation of international rules," Rayeesi said on Monday and added that the Prosecutor General and his Deputy for International Affairs will prosecute the complaints of the passengers of the Iranian Airbus in a solemn manner.
He, moreover, said that the US’ hostile to the Iranian Mahan Air Flight No. 1152 is by no means forgivable.

Later last night, the captain of Iranian plane declared the pilots of the two fighters have identified themselves as US army pilots through a radio contact.
