Iran humiliates US, again, with a drone flyover
Iran continues to flex its muscles and display its military might in the Gulf, while US forces are constantly on the defensive.
Iran flew a surveillance drone over a US aircraft carrier and published video of the encounter Friday, the latest in a series of edgy naval incidents between the two countries in the Persian Gulf after the recent nuclear deal.
While the US Navy stressed it knew the drone was unarmed and the flyover didn’t interrupt US operations in the war against the Islamic State (ISIS) group, the incident underlined the continued tension over control of waterways crucial to global oil supplies. It follows a rocket test last month by the Islamic Republic near coalition warships and commercial traffic, as well as Iran’s brief capture of American sailors who strayed into its territorial waters.
Iranian state television and the semi-official Fars news agency, which has close ties to the Revolutionary Guard, published identical images Friday both said came from the drone. The footage, which The Associated Press could not independently verify, purported to show the drone being launched and then hovering over an unidentified aircraft carrier, a targeting bracket briefly passing over a jet parked on the deck below.
