US Navy Is Surprised That There Are Persian Ships In Persian Gulf

Speedboats of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) are seen during major drills in the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf code-named the Great Prophet 9 on February 25, 2015.

Fast-attack vessels of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps came close to a US.Navy ship in the Strait of Hormuz [a strait between the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf] on Saturday, Reuters reported, citing a US official.

“The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the boats came within 600 yards (meters) of the USNS Invincible, a tracking ship, and stopped. The Invincible and three ships from the British Royal Navy accompanying it had to change course.

The official said attempts were made to communicate over radio, but there was no response and the interaction was “unsafe and unprofessional,”” the article reads.
