The destroyer of the US Navy fired three warning shots in the direction of the four ships of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps. Reuters reported this, citing sources in the US defense establishment.
The incident occurred on Sunday when the Iranian ships closed in at high speed near the Strait of Hormuz.
It also reported that the US navy ship has established communication with the courts of Iran, but the response from them never came. In addition, the Navy destroyer fired warning flares and a U.S. Navy helicopter also dropped a smoke float before the warning shots were fired.
The publication writes that Iranian ships passed within 800 meters from the destroyer, which was accompanied by two other US military vessels.
