The US Navy revealed on Tuesday that US forces recently fired several warning shots at three ships enlisted in the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGCN) Navy after coming into close contact with US service members.

The incident occurred on April 26 and involved the US ships USS Firebolt and the US Coast Guard patrol boat Baranoff. Tuesday’s statement from the service indicates that an IRGCN ship had arrived within “unnecessarily close range of unknown intent” and that its closest approach was 68 yards for both US ships.
