U.S. Says Drones Were Not Captured

By  | 

No U.S. drone has been lost in the Gulf recently, a U.S. Navy spokesman said after Iran said on Tuesday (December 4) it had captured a U.S. intelligence-gathering drone in its airspace in the last few days.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said a ScanEagle drone was gathering information over the Gulf and had entered Iranian airspace when it was "captured".

A spokesman for the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command in Bahrain said the Navy has fully accounted for all unmanned air vehicles (UAV) operating in the Middle East region.
