    Iran: US May Have Downed Its Own UAS By Mistake - "We've Not Lost Any Drones" Iran has issued a surprise astounding contradiction of the US account related to Thursday's drone downing. President Trump had announced that the amphibious assault ship, the USS Boxer, shot down an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz in a defensive action. The president said in a press briefing it was "immediately destroyed," when it came within 1,000 yards of the ship according to the president, "threatening the safety of the ship and the ship's crew." But Iran has denied losing any of its drones following the perplexing statement from Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif yesterday evening saying he was not be aware of any drone downing[…]
