BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:25 A.M.) – Iranian fast attack boats allegedly confronted a number of British warships in the Persian Gulf recently, the Telegraph reported.
According to the Telegraph report, the Iranian fast attack boats halted the British Navy’s HMS Dragon destroyer as it was escorting several warships through the strategic Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf.
After Dragon commander Michael Carter Quinn ordered five blasts of the ship’s horn as a warning, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy responded by radioing that they are “here to safeguard our national sovereignty and we are doing routine operations.”
Quinn told The Telegraph that if the Iranian attack boats did not move aside in the long run, the Dragon crew would have to fire flares and warning shots.
“You have to provide a robust response. The day you don’t take it seriously is the day you become unstuck,” he underscored.
This latest incident comes just two months after the IRGC commanders warned that they are closely monitoring the Persian Gulf waters, vowing to confront any hostile warships.
