Iranian fast boats again harass US warship in Persian Gulf

Seven Iranian fast boats again harassed an American ship in the Persian Gulf, forcing the USS Navy Firebolt patrol boat to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision with one of the fast boats that sped at it head-on.

It is the latest in a string of such incidents over the past two weeks where small craft from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) have harassed American Navy ships in the Gulf.
