WASHINGTON, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- The Pentagon said it is concerned about Iran's intentions in the Persian Gulf after Iranian fighters fired on a U.S. Air Force drone over international waters.

CNN reported the incident involving two Iranian Su-25 fighter jets occurred Nov. 1. The drone was not hit, the Pentagon said.

CNN, quoting officials, said the jets belonged to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps. The drone's cameras captured video images of the attack.

The United States has filed a protest, CNN said. So far, there has been no response from Iran.
