BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 A.M.) – The Iranian military has allegedly shot down a U.S. drone that was flying near the Strait of Hormuz this morning.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps air force shot down an “American espionage drone” that was invading Iranian territory, the IRGC’s public relations arm said in a statement released on Thursday.

The drone was flying above Kuh Mubarak in Hormozgan province.

RQ-4s typically fly at high altitude to conduct reconnaissance missions.

The US has not yet responded to the allegations, though the Pentagon accused Iran on Sunday of a failed attempt to shoot down a US Reaper drone that was observing one of the oil tankers attacked in the Gulf of Oman last week.

US CENTCOM spokesman Capt. Bill Urban told the AP, “There was no drone over Iranian territory.”

US spokesman maybe forgot some words in his statement. “There was no drone over Iranian territory” after it was downed.
