BREAKING: 7 Iranian Ships Swarm US Navy Boat


A U.S. navy patrol boat was approached and harassed by seven Iranian warships in the Persian Gulf, narrowly avoiding a collision with one of them.

It’s the latest in a string of incidents with the Islamic Republic of Iran in those waters.

The U.S. Naval Institute is reporting that seven Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy “fast in-shore attack craft” approached the USS Firebolt while it was operating in international waters in the central part of the gulf on Sunday.

Three of the Iranian ships maneuvered close to the Firebolt, mirroring the ship’s course and speed 500 yards away for eight minutes before leaving. Another Iranian attack ship then sped toward the Firebolt, and stopped directly in front of the ship, causing it to maneuver to avoid a collision. The two ships came within 100 yards of each other.

During the incident, the Firebolt crew attempted radio communication three times to understand the Iranians’ intentions, but the FIAC crews never responded. The FIACs’ crew-served weapons were uncovered and manned but untrained during the encounter, the official said.
