IRGC to release photos of US frigate soon

The Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) public relations office in a statement described as US claims on destroying Iranian drone, saying pictures of the US frigate taken by IRGC drone will be released soon, ONA reports citing IRNA.

In the wake of US President’s allegations regarding shooting down Iranian drone by US Wasp-class amphibious assault ship ‘USS Boxer’ in Strait of Hormuz and its rejection by Iran Armed Forces, IRGC said the pictures of USS Boxer will be released soon to disclose US claims.

The pictures will show that the IRGC drone had been doing its mission in the region before the US frigate entered the Strait of Hormuz and has sent pictures of its monitoring the US frigate and has then returned to its base safely, the statement reads.

It added that in line with safeguarding Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf, the IRGC naval and aerospace forces are intelligently controlling movements of foreigners, especially US and UK forces, in the region.
