Iran has shot down a US military “spy” drone flying over southern Iranian province of Hormozgan, on Thursday.

The US military has in recent days confirmed an attempt by Iran to shoot down a US drone last week, as well as the successful shooting down of one on June 6 by Iran-aligned Houthi forces in Yemen.
