SULAIMANI — A Iran’s state television on Friday (July 19) aired footage it said disproved US President Donald Trump’s assertion that the US Navy has destroyed an Iranian drone in the Gulf.

The video published by the Revolutionary Guards showed aerial views of warships. The television station said the drone had captured the footage and timing notations showed the drone was still filming after Washington said it had been downed in the Strait of Hormuz, according to Reuters.

Trump said on Thursday that the drone had flown to within 1,000 yards (900 meters) of the US warship Boxer and had ignored “multiple calls to stand down.”
