Iranian-Backed Terrorists Shoot Down U.S. Military Aircraft

Iran­ian-backed ter­ror­ists in Yemen shot down a U.S. mil­i­tary drone over inter­na­tion­al waters on Wednes­day, which comes after U.S. forces through­out the region have been repeat­ed­ly attacked by Iran’s ter­ror­ist prox­ies.
A U.S. defense offi­cial con­firmed the inci­dent to CNN and said that U.S. Cen­tral Com­mand was inves­ti­gat­ing.
The Houthis, an Iran­ian-backed ter­ror­ist group in Yemen that the Biden admin­is­tra­tion delist­ed as a ter­ror group back in 2021, claimed cred­it for down­ing the $56.5 mil­lion MQ‑9 Reaper drone over the Red Sea.
Iran shot down a U.S. drone back in June of 2019 with a sur­face-to-air mis­sile and then-Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump ini­tial­ly approved a retal­ia­to­ry strike against Iran before back­ing off his deci­sion.
