Kuala Lumpur-The Defense Minister of Malaysia, Hishammuddin Hussein, said that the military intelligence and remains from the crashed MH17 flight show that a surface-to-air missile was utilized to shoot the plane down.

The Defense Minister believes that such a system to shoot down a plane can only be obtained from the rebel forces or Ukrainians. The remarks of the minister were mainly based on military intelligence and from observing the wreckage of the plane MH17.

Previously reported news showed that intelligence analysts had observed that the plane was shot down by air-to-air missiles and that the Ukrainian government was responsible for the mishap.

Boeing 777 came down with around 298 persons, including around 43 Malaysians, on the flight in a separatist held area of Ukraine. The US claimed that the Boeing 777 was shot down by a missile attack, a probable casualty of Kiev government’s rivalry with the pro-Russian rebels.
