Iranian boats escalate confrontations with U.S. Navy

“Iranian paramilitaries in the Persian Gulf are ratcheting up their confrontations with U.S. warships in international waters, and the U.S. is taking notice. Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy boats are known for harassing American warships in the Gulf and especially the Strait of Hormuz. But those confrontations spiked as IRGCN boats drove near U.S. ships in four separate incidents over two days this week, provoking one U.S. ship to fire warning shots. The small vessels typically cross dangerously near the U.S. ship or track it in formations that can resemble a boat swarm attack. The Iranian paramilitaries do not respond to attempts to communicate.”
