Protesters in Iran called for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to step down after the country admitted to shooting down a commercial airliner accidentally.

Video on social media shows demonstrators in front of Amirkabir University in Tehran chanting, “Commander-in-chief resign, resign.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The protest came a day after Iran said it “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian airliner and killed all 176 people on board. The downing came just hours after the Iranian military fired more than a dozen missiles at bases in Iraq housing American troops.

Iran originally claimed a mechanical error brought the plane down. Then, the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom said intelligence suggested Iranian anti-aircraft missiles took the plane down.

Footage was also released that showed the jet being shot down.
