US shoots down drone close to Iraqi-Syrian border


[6/20/2017 7:28:39 PM]

AMMONNEWS - The US led coalition said on Tuesday it had shot down an armed pro-Syrian drone that had been advancing on its forces near a garrison close to the border with Iraq in southeastern Syria.

In a statement, US forces said the drone was shot at after it “displayed hostile intent and advanced on coalition forces.”

The location was close to where another “pro-regime UAV” drone, which Western intelligence sources said was Iranian, was shot down on June 8 after dropping bombs near coalition forces, the statement said.
