Iranian Vessels Come Dangerously Close to US Military Ships

Iranian ships came dangerously close to U.S. Navy vessels in the Persian Gulf near Kuwait, Wednesday, April 15.

The U.S. military said on Wednesday eleven vessels from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) came close to U.S. Navy and Coast Guard ships in the Northern Persian Gulf, calling the moves “dangerous and provocative.”

At one point, the Iranian vessels came within 10 yards of the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Maui.

The U.S. ships issued several warnings through bridge-to-bridge radio, blasts from the ships’ horns and long-range acoustic noisemaker devices.

The Iranian ships left after about an hour, the U.S. military added.

Tensions between Iran and the United States increased earlier this year after the United States killed Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, in a drone strike in Iraq.

Iran retaliated on January 8 with a rocket attack on Iraq’s Ain al-Asad base where U.S. forces were stationed. No U.S. troops were killed or faced immediate bodily injury, but more than 100 were later diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries.
