The Iranian Revolutionary Guards reportedly shot down the “US espionage drone” of the model Global Hawk over the southern Iranian province of Hormozgan, the elite unit of the country’s armed forces reported on its news portal “Sepah.”

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.

Tensions between the United States and Iran have been in the past few weeks drastically tightened,  Washington recently hold Tehran for the alleged attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman responsible.

Iran has rejected the allegations. The dispute over the Iranian nuclear program is also being worsened.

As late as Wednesday, the Iranian Security Council (SNSC) said it believed there would be no war between Iran and the United States.

“There is no reason at all for a war, because US allegations against other countries are a worldwide known tactic to exert political pressure,” SNSC secretary Ali Shamkhani told tthe state news agency Irna.
