"CNN: Iranians Fired on U.S. Drone Last Week"

Last week, two jets operated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps “fired on an unarmed U.S. Air Force Predator drone in the Persian Gulf” according to CNN. U.S. officials told CNN that the U.S. drone was in “international airspace east of Kuwait” and on a “routine maritime surveillance.” U.S. “military intelligence analysts” also told CNN that they “are still not sure if the Iranian pilots simply were unable to hit the drone due to lack of combat skill, or whether they deliberately were missing and had no intention of bringing down the drone.”
