Iran “Worried” That US May Have Shot Down Its Own Drone

Master level trolling from Tehran which denies having lost a drone

The statement comes after US President Donald Trump on Thursday claimed an American ship had destroyed an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz that ignored its warnings. At the same time, Tehran has stated that the Iranian military has no information about losing an aircraft.

“We have not lost any drone in the Strait of Hormuz nor anywhere else. I am worried that USS Boxer has shot down their own UAS [Unmanned Aerial System] by mistake!”, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said on Twitter, referring to the recent incident.

In the meantime, the Iranian military has announced that all of its unmanned aircraft safely returned to base, Tasnim News agency reported.

The claims about the Iranian drone come amid another escalation of tensions between Washington and Tehran.

Several oil tankers have reportedly been attacked in the Middle East, so the US and allies rushed to accuse the Islamic Republic of organising those incidents.

Later, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps downed an American unmanned aircraft,saying it had violated Iranian airspace. The United States was reportedly ready to undertake a retaliatory operation against Iran, but President Trump said he had cancelled it ten minutes before the start.

Speaking of trolling America, there should have also been a reference or two to the assorted F-35 Lemonjets that have crashed in accidents around the world.

Iran has now released video footage from the drone and its timing marks prove the drone was not downed as the US said.

US Navy owns and sails as they claim with the most sophistocated warships on the High Seas.
How to explain stearing into merchant vessels on the same High Seas with all these ultra modern equipment?

And here the same navy is claiming having shot down an iranian drone?

In this case I do follow the iranian flow: US Navy shot down their own drone and claim it as a “victory” which let CinC Trump declare more sanctions against Iran?
Quite a “deplorable” way to “keep the undeclared war going on”.

Admiral General Trump, Sir, you got the wrong advisors.
Throw them out but keep the only truthful Congress politician Mr. Rand Paul at hand and let him urgently have talks with Iran, Sir, for restoring peace in the Middle East. And by the way, Sir, talking about the ME, Greater Israel will never be established, Sir. You better start forgetting BiBi’s demand to make war with Iran and war with Syria over this again, Sir.
The world want Peace for a change, Mister President, Sir.
