Iran Reports Capture Of Another US Drone

Reuters news service reports, “Iran said on Tuesday it had captured a U.S. intelligence ScanEagle drone in its airspace over the Gulf in the last few days, but the United States said there was no evidence to support the assertion…The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps said on its website that the drone had been flying over the Gulf in the last few days and was ‘captured’ when it strayed into Iranian airspace….The IRGC statement did not specify when or where the drone was found, nor whether it was shot down or crashed.” ScanEagle, a relatively cheap surveillance drone, has been in operation since 2004. Iran asserts it’s a second capture after downing of a CIA RQ-170 drone, last December, covered in a prior post here.
