US Navy drone shot down by Iranian missile over Strait of Hormuz

A U.S. high-altitude drone was shot down Thursday by an Iranian surface-to-air missile over the Strait of Hormuz amid heightened tensions in the region after last week’s attacks on two oil tankers, a source told Fox News.

A commander for Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said the shooting sends `a clear message’ to the U.S. He said while Iran has no intention of war with anyone, it’s “ready for war.”

The U.S. Navy’s MQ-4C drone, , which has the same wingspan as a Boeing 737, was over international airspace at the time and about 17 miles from Iran, the source said.

Capt. Bill Urban, a U.S. Central Command spokesman, declined to comment on the reported attack when reached by the AP, but he said no drone was over Iranian territory.

    For many decades countries have spied on each other. Our subs used to enter Russian harbors and I am sure theirs did the same. One of our U-2 spy planes was shot down over Russia. With the technology today we don’t even have to get close to spy. The drone was probably now where near Iran.
