A fighter jet of the U.S.-led coalition in Syria shot down a drone in the eastern part of the country Saturday after the unmanned aircraft was deemed a threat, the U.S. military said.

“A coalition aircraft successfully engaged and defeated a UAS through air-to-air engagement in the vicinity of Mission Support Site Green Village,” said coalition spokesperson U.S. Army Colonel Wayne Marotto.

Fox News reported the drone was Iranian, adding that U.S. officials said it was flying "too close" to American troops.

The Pentagon last month said it was deeply concerned about attacks on U.S. personnel in Syria and Iraq after U.S. diplomats and troops were targeted in three rocket and drone attacks that wounded two American service members.
