(Worthy News) - The Navy released a video Saturday showing an Iranian military ship firing a rocket last month near U.S. and French military vessels and commercial ships in the Persian Gulf.
The Dec. 26 incident appears to be the latest in a series by Iran that are raising concerns about the rogue nation, as the United States and other world powers prepare to lift crippling economic sanctions in exchange for Tehran curtailing its pursuit of a nuclear weapon.
The most recent incident occurred in the Strait of Hormuz, which is the only nautical passage for oil-laden ships going to and from the gulf to the open Arabian Sea. [ Source ]
