“The United States has been pushing for false propaganda to respond to its failures in Persian Gulf,” said the spokesman for Parliament’s national security commission.
Spokesman of the Iranian parliamentary committee on national security and foreign policy Hossein Naghavi Hosseini refers to U.S. President Donald Trump's claim that the U.S. Navy downed an Iranian aircraft in the Strait of Hormuz and said to ILNA news agency that Washington's claim is part of an effort by the U.S. to "create tensions and psychological warfare in the region and in Iran, and hide its failures."
He added: “Trump’s claim is not endorsed by anyone, because it is not true. It must be said that the U.S. president's remarks is because of his inability.”
Iran on Friday said President Donald Trump's claim that the American Navy shot down an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz is "delusional" and suggested the U.S. may have accidentally destroyed its own aircraft.
But Trump insisted Friday that he has "no doubt" the U.S. Navy downed an Iranian drone.
According to Al Jazeera, a Trump administration official said the Pentagon may release its own video of the incident.
"We have not lost any drone in the Strait of Hormuz nor anywhere else," Abbas Araghchi, Iran's deputy foreign minister, tweeted Friday. "I am worried that USS Boxer has shot down their own [unmanned aircraft system] by mistake!"
