On April 22, US President Donald Trump said that he had ordered the US Navy to destroy Iranian ‘gunboats’ that harras US warships.

Recently, the number of incident between the US Navy and the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Navy in the Persian Gulf increased.

On April 15th, 11 IRGC Navy fast boats “harassed” 6 US warships operating in the north Persian Gulf. The US military claimed that the IRGCN vessels repeatedly conducted “dangerous and harassing approaches” of the USS Lewis B. Puller, USS Paul Hamilton, USS Firebolt, USS Sirocco, USCGC Wrangell and USCGC Maui while the U.S. vessels were conducting joint integration operations with U.S. Army AH-64E Apache attack helicopters in the international waters of the North Arabian Gulf.

In own turn, the Iranian side said that it was the US that conducted aggressive and destabilizing actions in the region, and the IRGC Navy only reacted to them.
