Washington Ready to Respond to any Iranian Provocations -US President Says

Washington, US President Donald Trump said the United States is confident that its forces had shot down an Iranian unmanned aircraft over the Strait of Hormuz, on Thursday.

In a statement from the White House, the president said that: "There is no doubt that we dropped it, and we are ready to respond to any other Iranian provocation."

On the other hand, National Security Adviser John Bolton confirmed that there is no doubt that the drone which had been shot down by the United States was Iranian.
