Iranian Warship Points Weapon At US Military Helicopter In Gulf Of Aden, Defense Officials Confirm
An Iranian warship operating in the Gulf of Aden aimed a weapon at a U.S. military helicopter two weeks ago, Department of Defense officials confirmed Wednesday. The helicopter had just finished landing on a coalition ship’s deck that was positioned just a few hundred feet from the Iranian warship when an on-deck machine-gun was pointed in its direction.
U.S. Navy officials took pictures of the scene, but have not released them to the public, and have also declined to name the country that the coalition warship belongs to. The weapon is believed to have been a standard on-deck machine gun, according to a CNN report, which also noted that there was also a cameraman behind the person operating the weapon.
