A US ship has fired 30 warning shots to fend off Iranian speedboats "harassing" ballistic missile sub in Strait of Hormuz.
According to the Pentagon, the shots came after thirteen Iranian speedboats "conducted unsafe and unprofessional" manoeuvres near it.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the speedboats from Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) came as close as 150 yards to six U.S. military vessels.
The warning shots were fired from a .50 calibre machine gun before the Iranian vessels left, he said.
