Iran’s Revolutionary Guard calimed it shot down a U.S. drone on Thursday over Iranian, while two U.S. officials told The Associated Press that the downing happened over international airspace in the Strait of Hormuz. 

The different accounts could not be immediately reconciled.

“The downing of the American drone was a clear message to America ... our borders are Iran’s red line and we will react strongly against any aggression ... Iran is not seeking war with any country, but we are fully prepared to defend Iran,” said the Guards’ commander-in-chief, Hossein Salami, TV reported.
