This remark came a week after 11 vessels from Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy came very close to US ships in the Gulf.

Last week, the US Navy released a video of the incident. It shows small Iranian fast boats coming close to American warships carrying US Army Apache helicopters as they operated in the northern Persian Gulf near Kuwait.
