US vows to shoot down any Iran drones that fly too closely to its ships

WASHINGTON, July 19 (Reuters) - The United States will destroy any Iranian drones that fly too closely to its ships and has “clear evidence” that it shot down such a drone on Thursday, a senior Trump administration official said on Friday.

“If they fly too close to our ships, they’ll continue to be shot down,” the official told reporters at a briefing. (Reporting by Steve Holland; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
