WASHINGTON (Dispatches) – Yemen’s Houthi fighters recently shot down a U.S. government-operated drone with assistance from Iran, the U.S. military claimed in a statement on Sunday.
Lt. Col. Earl Brown, a spokesman for the U.S. Central Command, said the altitude at which the MQ-9 drone was shot down on June 6 marked "an improvement over previous Houthi capability,” a fact that led the military to conclude the rebel group had help from Iran.
