Dubai. In the Persian Gulf, a US warship opened fire warning the ships of Iran’s paramilitary force Revolutionary Guard when they came too close during a patrol. The US Navy gave this information on Wednesday. The US Navy has released footage of the encounter on Monday night in the International Maritime Zone north of the Persian Gulf. The sound of a shot can be heard in the footage. Iran has not commented on this incident yet. The US Navy reported that the USS Firebolt opened fire while warning that three ships of the Revolutionary Guard fell within its 62-meter radius.

Navy spokeswoman Rebecca Rebarich said, “The American crew members gave many warnings, but the guard ships kept coming close to them.” After this, members of the firebolt crew opened fire warning them and then their ships went away from the American ships.
