Iranian air defenses on Thursday fired warning shots at a U.S. drone flying over the Gulf, Tehran’s semi-official Nour news agency reported.

The report said that the Islamic republic’s air defenses fired at an MQ-9 Reaper flying near the Strait of Hormuz near the Iranian border.

The drone was unharmed, something the report said was intentional.
