Iranian attack boats force US ship off course in Persian Gulf
Iranian attack boats forced a US Navy ship to change course in the Persian Gulf’s Strait of Hormuz on Saturday, Reuters reports, quoting a US official.
The official says multiple boats approached the USNS Invincible, coming within 600 yards of it.
According to the official, three British ships that were accompanying the Invincible were also forced to change course.
Attempts to communicate with the Iranian vessels over radio did not garner any responses, the official says.
