Malaysia Airlines MH17: Targeted By Rebels?

As news breaks on the tragic crash of Malaysia Airlines MH17, more information on the targeted action has emerged.

Commercial airplane Malaysian Airlines MH17 has been confirmed as shot down by missile system about 25 miles away from Donestk, Ukraine. All 295 passengers and crew were killed on impact.

The eastern border of the Ukraine has been fighting against a more Western social structure in order to gain entrance and treaty with the European Union.


Al Jazeera reports that in June pro-Russian separatists gained weaponry similar to what is suspected of shooting down the plane today. Yet the rebels are denying any responsibility of the act. Factual information is spotty due to the fact the crash just happened.

Interestingly, Business Insider 's Elena Holodny accounts a local's opinion and experience on the matter. The source wishes to remain anonymous because "the town is run by the terrorists, and I do not want to suffer." He points out that while not witnessing due to workspace facing the wrong direction, "his colleagues saw a Buk missile system pass by their office."


"Local Ukraine Residents Say They Saw Rebels With Missiles Suspected Of Taking Down Malaysia Plane" shows a tweet of Ukrainian radio station Radio 24 that displays a Buk missile system. Holodny notes the Cyrillic text translates to "'Buk' terrorists were in Snezhnoye today." Confirming what the source discussed.

Through networking, the originala source provided a second source that offered corroborating information the Buk missile system "was being towed and it was transported to the Snezhnoye."


Located in Torez, Ukraine, the second witness explained the experience to a non-local audience by offering an auditory breakdown of the trio of explosions. "The first when the plane was actually hit, the second when the tail of the plane fell off, and the third when the plane fell." More rural Snezhnoye’s located about 7 miles from Torez, so the noise must have been deafening.

A local correspondent for Al Jazeera says the site, not just the plane but local area as well, is "devastated." Video of the billowing, black smoke gives a good idea on the sheer ground impact of the plane crashing.

But who really targeted the plane?

Brett Logiurato for the Business Insider notes "US INTELLIGENCE: Surface-To-Air Missile Was Fired At Malaysian Plane In Ukraine." The biggest problem lies in the lack of missile origin. Information remains fluid as denial and admittance seem to war within the pro-Russian rebel movement. In fact, the Donetsk region branch has admitted to such acts while denying any possibility earlier in the day.


So which is it? No one knows the truth exactly.

It’s still too soon to say where the origin point happened since the plane was targeted, but the Ukrainian security services (SBU) presentation of intercepted audio recordings tend to disseminate the earlier claims of rebel innocence. Valentin Nalyvaichenko told the press in a conference while Russia says the Ukrainian government has weaponry to target the plane easily enough.

The under-siege country isn’t really agreeing with Russia’s position. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko bluntly stated the action was a "terrorist" in origin. The Dutch government, where the flight originated from, agrees with the Ukrainian. What does that mean for the region? No one knows precisely.


Just yesterday, July 16, the U.S. and E.U. put heavier sanctions on Russian and pro-Russian supporters. These sanctions are intended to stop a global war, but as the Ukrainian conflict grows, nations will no longer be able to avoid some dark, deep discussions. Conflicts are not decreasing, but increasing. In fact, there was a warning Monday when rebels shot down a Ukrainian cargo flight and a military jet on Wednesday.

 

Rebel acceptance of downing a Malaysian Boeing 777 pushes this well beyond Ukrainian and Russian borders now. And he more violent the fray becomes, the more the world cannot reasonably sit back and wait.
