Unconfirmed Reports of IRGC Vessels Surrounding USS Abraham Lincoln During Strait of Hormuz Transit
December 04: UNCONFIRMED reports that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) allegedly surrounded a U.S. aircraft carrier group as it was transiting the Strait of Hormuz last week.
According to reports, the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier group was escorted by 20 small craft from the IRGC’s Navy.
The Defence Blog reported that one of the IRGC’s small craft was at one point within 400 yards of the aircraft carrier group.
The U.S. Navy has yet to comment on these allegations; however, if true, this would not be the first time that the IRGC’s Navy has surrounded a U.S. ship and escorted it through the Strait of Hormuz.
