Iran, June 20, 2019 - A surface to air missile launched by the Iranian regime brought down a U.S. military drone on Thursday flying in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz, according to the Associated Press citing a U.S. official. The report of this attack on the American drone comes as tensions between Tehran and Washington are already escalating, the report adds.

The U.S. military said no American drone was flying or on a mission in Iranian airspace on Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, local time.

Reuters cited a CENTCOM spokesperson saying no U.S. drones were in Iranian airspace.

U.S. President Donald Trump responded to the incident by tweeting, “Iran made a very big mistake.”






Reports indicate that U.S. President Donald Trump is considering a multitude of options following the American drone downing by Tehran. A limited strike on the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) is also considered, reports show.

The U.S State Department recently designated the IRGC as a “Foreign Terrorist Organization” (FTO).
