The United States and several Arab countries in this region regularly denounce Iran’s actions in this particularly strategic maritime zone, an almost exclusive navigation route for connecting the oil-producing countries of the Gulf to world markets. “Three ships of the Revolutionary Guards Navy (Iran’s ideological army) interacted in an unsafe and unprofessional manner as US Navy ships transited the Strait of Hormuz on June 20said the 5th Fleet in a statement released Monday. According to her, the two American boats were carrying out “a routine transit through international waters when three Iranian fast attack ships approached“.
One of the Revolutionary Guards’ boats approached “dangerously high speed» and to «less than 50 metersfrom one of the US Navy ships, which then issued “audible warning signals to avoid collision“. According to the 5th Fleet, the interaction lasted an hour and ended when the Iranian vessel left the area, claiming a breach of “international standards of professional and safe maritime behavior“. The US 5th Fleet is based in Bahrain, a Gulf kingdom very hostile to Iran and located about 600 kilometers from the Strait of Hormuz.
