Iran Shoots Down US Military Drone
Iran Shoots Down US Military Drone A United States military drone was shot down by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard issued a statement claiming that the drone violated Iran’s airspace to spy and gather intel. A U.S. Central Command spokesperson told Reuters that no U.S. drones violated Iranian territory. The incident adds strain to the increasingly tense relationship between the U.S. and Iran. Tensions arose in May 2018, when the U.S. exited a 2015 nuclear deal, making it more difficult for Iran to export enriched uranium. The Trump administration recently decided to deploy 1,000 additional troops to Iran to combat the growing hostility between the two nations.
