U.S. Navy Ship Destroys Iranian Drone Over Strait Of Hormuz

A U.S. Navy warship called the USS Boxer shot down an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday, President Trump said, adding, “The drone was immediately destroyed.”

“The Boxer took defensive action against an Iranian drone,” Trump said, giving details about the encounter at the start of a flag presentation ceremony at the White House. He said the drone had closed to about 1,000 yards from the U.S. ship, “ignoring multiple calls to stand down.”

The drone was threatening the safety of the U.S. ship and its crew, Trump said.
