Iran Releases Video it Says Shows Shooting Down of US Drone
Iran released video on Thursday, June 20, showing what it says was the shooting down of a US drone that entered its airspace.
The US said the drone was in international airspace.
US President Donald Trump said Iran had made a “very bad mistake” in shooting down the drone.
A New York Times report, citing administration officials, said Trump approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation, but stopped short of ordering them.
The Iranian video sheds little light on the circumstances of the strike.
The nighttime video shows rockets launching from an undisclosed location before what appears to be an explosion in the sky.
