(Worthy News) - 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.

“We look at this firing so close to the ships as highly provocative,” said the military official, who was not immediately authorized to be named. [ Source ]
