2024_04_13 US Intercepts Drones

As expected, this was a test with slow-moving drones that gave hours to respond, but now Iran knows the US shot the drones down – not Israel. U.S. defense announced that they shot down the drones. The official statement: the U.S. continues to “shoot down Iranian-launched drones targeting Israel.” They added, “Our forces remain postured to provide additional defensive support and to protect U.S. forces operating in the region.”

The British Royal Air Force has now also been deployed to the Middle East, and they too are prepared to intercept any Iranian drones headed to Israel, announced the U.K.’s Secretary of State for Defense Grant Shapps.
