BREAKING: U.S. Shoots Down Iranian Drone In Syria

According to CNN, the U.S. just shot down an Iranian drone in Syria. The drone was reportedly within firing range of U.S. troops.

This incident comes after a number of high-risk encounters in the region. On Sunday, U.S. forces shot down a Syrian jet, prompting Russia to issue a threat about shooting down U.S. aircraft. Also related was a near-miss collision between a U.S. fighter and a Russian fighter near the Baltic Sea.

The situation in the Middle East between the U.S. coalition, and the Syria-Russia-Iran alliance has reached a fever point. We’re all praying that President Trump will have the wisdom and skill to see our country through this dangerous time.
