Despite confirmed reports that Iranian warplanes fired on a U.S. drone over international waters on Thursday, Iran remained silent about the incident on Friday. The Pentagon has confirmed the warplanes fired on the unarmed Predator drone in international airspace 16 miles east of Iran on November 1, but neither Tehran nor Iran’s state-run media has mentioned it. The drone was not damaged during the attack.
