In a dazzling display of force, the American military squared off against the Iranians, shooting a drone that was acting provocatively.
Yesterday, the US Navy says it destroyed << provocative and hostile >> Iranian drone that flew within 1,000 yards of an American warship ship.
The military says it ignored warnings to retreat - as President Donald Trump claims it threatened the ship's crew.
While it did not say if the crew were scrambling to find shelter, the report says the USS Boxer was travelling through the Strait of Hormuz when an Iranian drone closed on its position in international waters.
U.S. Navy communicated warnings and then brought the drone down after it came within 1,000 yards, says Daily Mail UK.
For US President Trump it was a << provocative and hostile >> act.
But the sharpshooters of the American army immediately destroyed the Iranian intruder, employing electronic signal-jamming.
