US Navy warning shot in Gulf was 'unprofessional,' Iran says

Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard said on Saturday that U.S. navy ships came close to its vessels in the Gulf and shot flares.

The country's powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said an American Nimitz-class aircraft carrier accompanied by a warship came near IRGC boats patrolling Iran's Resalat oil-and-gas field.

"The Americans' move is a kind of unprofessional behavior", he said, adding that the United States naval forces in the Persian Gulf are exhibiting such behavior without considering regional conditions.

"IRGC navy patrol boat continued its mission, ignoring the unprofessional and provocative move by the U.S. warship and the warship left the zone after a while", the IRGC said in a statement, IRNA reports.

A U.S. Navy ship Tuesday fired warning shots at an Iranian vessel that had come too close during a military exercise in the region, the U.S. Navy said.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) stated that one more incident occurred in the north of Persian Gulf with the participation of USA fleet.

In response, Navy spokesman Lieutenant Ian M. McConnaughey called the move "safe and professional".

The Iranian military noted that the incident took place just few days after another USA ship fired warning shots at Iranian vessels in the Persian Gulf.

'We condemn the hostile and unacceptable action, ' he said of the sanctions.

On Saturday Iran's foreign ministry said the missile program is part of "domestic policy of the country, deterrent and at service of regional peace and security".
