Iran shot down a United States surveillance drone early Thursday, both nations said, but they differed on the crucial issue of whether the aircraft had violated Iranian airspace, in the latest escalation in tensions that have raised fears of war between the two countries.
Iranian officials said that the drone was over Iran, which the American military denied — an important distinction in determining who was at fault — and each side accused the other of being the aggressor.
Both said the downing occurred at 4:05 a.m. Iranian time on Thursday, or 7:35 p.m. on Wednesday in Washington. The drone "was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile system while operating in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz," the United States Central Command said in a statement. "This was an unprovoked attack on a U.S. surveillance asset in international airspace."
