Iran’s IRGC force shoots down intruding US spy drone
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has shot down an intruding American spy drone in the country’s southern coastal province of Hormozgan.
In a statement issued early Thursday, the IRGC said the US-made Global Hawk surveillance drone was brought down by its Air Force near the Kouh-e Mobarak region — which sits in the central district of Jask County — after the aircraft violated Iranian airspace.
The statement added that further details will be released about the operation later.
Reacting to the news, the US military claimed it did not fly over Iranian airspace on Wednesday.
