DUBAI (Reuters) - Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) vessels approached U.S. Navy vessels on Wednesday in a “dangerous and harassing” manner, the U.S. Navy said in a statement.
Eleven IRGCN vessels repeatedly approached U.S. navy vessels in international waters of the North Arabian Gulf while the U.S. Navy was carrying out exercises, the statement from the Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet said, adding that the actions were “dangerous and provocative”.
No mention of the incident was found in Iranian media.
