Military official says close call ‘highly provocative’ as missile shot from within 1,500 yards of carrier in Strait of Hormuz
The Iranian navy test fired several rockets near three Western warships including the USS Harry S Truman aircraft carrier last week, a US military official said Tuesday.
Though the rockets were not fired toward any ship, their proximity to the warships — and several commercial vessels — sparked concern.
“We look at this firing so close to the ships as highly provocative,” said the military official, who was not immediately authorized to be named.
