Iranian Drone Harasses U.S. Aircraft Carrier in Persian Gulf, Raising Tensions

An Iranian drone harassed a U.S. air craft carrier in the Persian Gulf on Tuesday, according to a U.S. defense official.

The incident comes after Iranian terrorist proxies in the region have hijacked and attempted to hijack cargo ships and tankers in recent weeks that are tied to Israel. . .

One video that circulated on social media this week purported to show footage from an Iranian drone that was harassing the same carrier strike group.

The footage appears to correlate with statements from an official in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who said that the drone’s presence interfered with U.S. helicopter operations, according to Iran’s state-run Farsnews Agency.

Satellite imagery from this week showed the carrier strike group only 62 miles away from Iran, a clear sign from the U.S. that Iran should not escalate tensions in the region. (Read more from “Iranian Drone Harasses U.S. Aircraft Carrier in Persian Gulf, Raising Tensions” HERE)
