The drone is said to have violated Iran’s airspace as it flew across the province’s hormonal tract. The province borders directly on the Persian Gulf.

A spokesman for the US regional command responsible for the region initially stated that “no US aircraft or drones were operating in Iranian airspace during the period in question”.

The news agencies AP and Reuters quote meanwhile an unnamed American government employee, according to which actually a drone was traveling. However, it was not in the Iranian airspace, but had flown over the  adjacent area of Hormozgan. The busy estuary lies between Iran and the Arabian Peninsula.
