Iran Fired on U.S. Predator Drone in Gulf, Pentagon Says

Iranian aircraft fired on an unarmed U.S. Predator drone that was conducting routine surveillance in international waters, Pentagon spokesman George Little said.

The drone wasn’t hit and returned safely to its base, Little said. The drone was 16 nautical miles from the Iranian coast at the time of the incident on Nov. 1, he said.
