BAGHDAD (AP) — The U.S. military says American jets shot down an Iranian unmanned surveillance aircraft last month over Iraqi territory.

Monday’s statement says the incident took place Feb. 25 about 60 miles northeast of Baghdad. The Iranian unmanned plane was identified as an “Ababil 3” model.

The U.S. said the unmanned plane had been tracked for more than an hour and was shot down well inside Iraqi territory.
