Iranian navy test fires rockets near US carrier

0

WASHINGTON, D.C.: The Iranian navy test fired several rockets near three Western warships including the USS Harry S Truman aircraft carrier last week, a US military official said Tuesday. Though the rockets were not fired toward any ship, their proximity to the warships — and several commercial vessels — sparked concern. The incident took place on December 26, shortly after the Iranian navy had announced via radio it was about to conduct a live-fire exercise and warned ships to steer clear. The Western vessels did not need to take evasive action, the official said.
