Iran denied it lost a drone in the Strait of Hormuz after the United States said it had 'destroyed' an Iranian drone that was threatening a U.S. ship.

'We have not lost any drone in the Strait of Hormuz nor anywhere else. I am worried that USS Boxer has shot down their own UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) by mistake!,' Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said on Twitter. 

Iran's semi-official Tasnim news agency quoted military spokesman Gen. Abolfazl Shekari as saying that 'all Iranian drones that are in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, including the one which the U.S. president mentioned, after carrying out scheduled identification and control missions, have returned to their bases.'
