July 19th, 2019: According to a Press Release, The United States claims that a US Navy vessel has “destroyed” an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz after it threatened them.
Whereas, Iran denies the US claims saying they didn’t lose any unmanned aircraft soon after Donald Trump statement.
“This is the latest of many provocative and hostile actions by Iran against vessels operating in international waters. The US reserves the right to defend our personnel, facilities and interests,” Trump said.
“The drone was immediately destroyed,” he added.
We have not lost any drone in the Strait of Hormuz nor anywhere else. I am worried that USS Boxer has shot down their own UAS by mistake!
