TEHRAN, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- Iran's state TV on Saturday quoted the Iranian military as saying that it "unintentionally" shot down the Ukrainian jetliner on Wednesday, killing all the 176 passengers and crew members on board.

Iranian armed forces said they mistook the Ukrainian jet for a hostile plane, according to the state TV.

The Ukrainian Airlines passenger plane, with 176 people on board, crashed Wednesday morning near Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran shortly after taking off.

Iran on Friday urged all parties involved to contribute to a probe into the crash.
