BREAKING: “You’ll Find Out”: Trump Doesn’t Rule Out US Response to Iran Over Drone Downing…(6…)

Earlier on Thursday, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps reported that air defence forces had shot down an RQ-4 Global Hawk reconnaissance drone flying over southern Iran.

US President Donald Trump has tweeted an ominous and ambiguous six-word message in what may be an acknowledgement that a US drone was downed in Iran, with the tweet simply reading “Iran made a very big mistake!”

Trump has yet to clarify what he meant at the time of this writing, but it may be a confirmation of Iran’s earlier claims that it shot down a RQ-4 Global Hawk as it crossed into Iran’s borders over Hormuzgan Province.

Later, asked by reporters about how the US would respond to the drone shootdown, Trump said “You’ll find out.” without offering any more details.

According to Trump, the drone was shot down over international waters, not Iranian territory. The president said he remained willing to talk with Iran.

Earlier, an unnamed US official told Reuters that a Navy MQ-4C Triton drone had been shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile, with the official claiming the shoot down took place over international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz. The IRGC claims the drone in question was a Northrop Grumman RQ-4, and said it was shot down over Iranian territory.

IRGC commander in chief Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami said the downed drone was a “clear message to America,” stressing that although Iran was “not seeking war with any country,” it was “fully prepared to defend” the country from foreign aggression.
