CENTCOM investigating reports of downing US drone over Yemen

WASHINGTON, The US Central Command (CENTCOM) said Wednesday it is investigating reports of Houthi claimed attacked on a US unmanned aerial system (UAS) over Yemen.

CENTCOM spokesman Earl Brown said in a statement “we are investigating reports of an attack by Iranian-backed Houthis forces on a US unmanned aerial system (UAS) operating in authorized airspace over Yemen.” “We have been clear that Iran’s provocative actions and support to militants and proxies, like the Iranian-backed Houthis, poses a serious threat to stability in the region and our partners,” the statement stressed.
