Yankee flyboys scored an air to air kill on an Iranian drone headed towards US troops deployed in Syria. Soon after the British RAF scored a follow up air to air blast of another hostile drone in Syria. The Iranians are mounting weak attacks. Quite pathetic.
FNC: “The U.S. military downed a drone deemed to have hostile intent Tuesday that was headed toward a base in southeast Syria that houses 200 American troops, a senior defense official told Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin.
Two unmanned aerial systems were spotted entering the At Tanf Garrison Deconfliction Zone located along the Iraq and Jordan-Syria border. One of the two drones traveled deeper into the zone and was shot down after ‘demonstrating hostile intent,’ Capt. Bill Urban, the spokesman for U.S. Central Command, told Fox News. The other drone left the area.

There were no casualties or damage to the facilities, Urban said. Another military official told Fox that the drone was downed in an air-to-air strike and was never close enough to the base to jeopardize troops. They were believed to have been launched by Iranian-backed Shia militias in the region, a military official said.”

Robert Malley, the U.S. envoy for Iran, said at a conference in Bahrain that “the time will come if Iran continues at this pace with the advancements they’ve made, [it] will make it impossible even if we were going to go back to the JCPOA to recapture the benefits.” This is State Department gibberish.
Another drone was fired in a similar fashion at American troops two months ago. Centcom then commented, “Based on initial reports, the attack utilized both unmanned aerial systems and indirect fire,” Urban said. “All U.S. personnel have been accounted for, and we are not aware of any injuries to U.S. personnel at this time.” Urban added that U.S. Central Command is continuing to “work with our partners to confirm whether they suffered any casualties as a result of the deliberate attack. We continue to maintain all appropriate force protection measures to ensure the safety and security of our forces,” Urban said. “We maintain the inherent right of self defense and will respond at a time and place of our choosing.” We have not responded.
