US military confirms lost drone to Houthi fire over Yemen
Tehran (KNA) - The US military has lost an advanced drone over Yemen, American officials say, confirming earlier reports that the Houthi Ansarullah movement had downed a US-made MQ-9 Reaper attack drone.
Two military officials within the administration for President Donald Trump said Wednesday on condition of anonymity that the drone, which was shot down over Yemen's Dhamar governorate on late Tuesday, belonged to the US military.
One official said the drone was destroyed by a surface-to-air missile operated by the Houthi forces.
Another official said it was too early to say with certainty who was behind the attack.
