Iran Shoots Down US Drone

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said that it shot down a U.S. military drone early Thursday, heightening already strained tensions between Washington and Tehran.

The Guard said it shot down the drone over Hormozgan Province in southern Iran, Tehran’s state news agency, IRNA, reported.

“Shooting down of the US spy drone has a clear message and it is the fact that the defenders of this country are ready to give decisive response to any aggression,” Major-General Hossein Salami, who commands the Guard, said, according to the state news agency.

Two U.S. officials, however, told The Associated Press that the incident happened in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz.
