  • Iran downs 'foreign' drone over southern port city of Mahshahr

Iranian air defense force reportedly shot down an "unknown" drone on Friday morning for allegedly violating its airspace.

The governor of Iran's southern Khuzestan province, Gholamreza Shariati, later told IRNA that the downed drone was in the sky of Bandar Mahshahr in the province and was downed immediately by the Army air defense.

He said the drone violated Iran's airspace but did not provide any additional information, including whether it was a military or civilian drone.

A US military official told Fox News on Friday that all American drones are accounted for and none have been shot down.

The U.S. Central Command said no U.S. drone had been shot down and all had been accounted for.

Iran's arch-foe Israel declined to comment on the incident, with a spokeswoman for the Israeli military saying: "We do not comment on reports from the foreign media".

The semi-official Tasnim news agency said the drone had been downed while over Iran's airspace "with the army's domestically made Mersad surface-to-air missile".

The agency also ran a short video purporting to show a missile launched in the early morning that it said hit the drone.

"It was a firm reaction to an aggressor foreign drone ... before reaching sensitive sites of the country", IRNA quoted Alireza Sabahifard, commander of Iran Air Defence Force of Army.

Trump in June authorised a military strike after Iran shot down a U.S. drone, only to call off the retaliation at the last moment.

The incidents come amid soaring tensions between Tehran and Washington since United States President Donald Trump unilaterally abandoned a landmark 2015 nuclear deal previous year and reimposed crippling sanctions. In that episode, Washington said the aircraft was in global airspace, but Iran maintains it was over its territorial waters.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted in August at possible Israeli involvement in attacks on Iranian-backed militia positions in Iraq.
