NEW YORK (77 WABC) – A US Drone with the wing span of a 747 airliner was shot down early on Thursday by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. Iran is claiming that the American Spy Drone was intruding in their countries territory. The US claims that the Drone was in International Airspace flying over the Strait of Hormuz when it was shot down. Iran officials have said that the shoot down serves as a warning to the United States that the Iranian military is capable of countering any foreign aggression. The US Drone incident is the latest conflict between Iran and the United States which includes attacks on oil tankers last week. Iran has denied any involvement in the attacks of those ships.
