Trump: US warship destroyed Iranian drone in Strait of Hormuz
A U.S. warship destroyed an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz amid heightened tensions between the two countries, President Trump announced Thursday.
“The U.S. reserves the right to defend personnel, facilities, interests,” he said.
Trump said the USS Boxer took defensive action after the drone closed to within 1,000 yards of the warship and ignored multiple calls to stand down. The president called it the latest “hostile” action by Iran.
