但美国军方后来表示,其F-15战机与客机处于安全距离。

"A US F-15 on a routine air mission in the vicinity of the at [al]-Tanf garrison in Syria conducted a standard visual inspection of a Mahan Air passenger airliner at a safe distance of approximately 1,000 metres [0.6 miles] from the airliner this evening," Capt Bill Urban, spokesman for US Central Command, said in a statement late on Thursday.

He said the inspection was carried out to ensure the safety of personnel at the US military base at al-Tanf, near the border with Iraq and Jordan.

他说,这次检查是为了确保伊拉克和约旦接壤区域的美军基地人员的安全。

"Once the F-15 pilot identified the aircraft as a Mahan Air passenger plane, the F-15 safely opened distance from the aircraft," the spokesman added.

“一旦F-15飞行员确认这架飞机是马汉航空的客机,F-15就立即与客机保持安全距离,”该发言人补充说。

In its earlier reports, Irib news agency said that two fighter jets could have been Israeli. Israel "had nothing to do with the incident", security sources told Israeli public broadcaster Kan.

在早些报道中,伊朗国家广播新闻社称这两架战斗机可能是以色列的。而安全部门的消息人士告诉以色列公共广播公司,称以色列与这起事件无关。

Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said Iran was "investigating" the incident, adding that "necessary political and legal measures will be taken".
