WASHINGTON — A U.S. Navy ship destroyed a drone in the Strait of Hormuz, the Pentagon announced Thursday.

The USS Boxer, an amphibious assault ship, was in international waters traveling into the Strait of Hormuz when a drone approached the ship and “closed within a threatening range,” according to a statement by Jonathan Hoffman, chief Pentagon spokesman.

“The ship took defensive action against the [drone] to ensure the safety of the ship and its crew,” according to the statement. The incident occurred at approximately 10 a.m. local time. https://www.stripes.com/news/middle-east/navy-ship-shoots-down-iranian-drone-over-strait-of-hormuz-1.590959
