    Drone that killed US troops may have been mistaken for friendly – By Lolita C. Baldor and Aamer Madhani (The Associated Press) / Jan 29, 2024

    An enemy drone that killed three American troops and wounded dozens of others in Jordan may have been confused with an American drone returning to the U.S. installation, two U.S. officials said Monday.

    The officials, who were not authorized to comment and insisted on anonymity, said preliminary accounts suggest the enemy drone that struck the installation known as Tower 22 may have been mistaken for an American drone that was in the air at the same time.

    The officials said that as the enemy drone was flying in at a low altitude, a U.S. drone was returning to the base. As a result, there was no effort to shoot down the enemy drone.

    The preliminary conclusion was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.
