US President Donald Trump said that a US warship “destroyed” an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz, when speaking in Washington DC on Thursday.
Trump said that the Boxer “took defensive action” against an Iranian drone, which he said “had closed into a very, very near distance, approximately 1,000 yards, ignoring multiple calls to stand down and was threatening the safety of the ship and the ship’s crew.”
He noted that the Iranian drone was “immediately destroyed.”
The US president condemned what he described as Iran’s “latest of many provocative and hostile actions” against ships operating in international waters.
