During the conflict between Iran and the US over the Tehran nuclear deal, concerns were raised that an Iranian Revolutionary Guard speedboat had slammed into a U.S. warship in the Strait of Hormuz and fired warning shots from the warship. One-fifth of the world’s oil trade is through the Strait of Hormuz.

The Revolutionary Guard Bogomer boat sank about 45 meters from the US Navy’s Bahrain-based Fleet Fleet USS Sirocco and Navy cargo ship USS Choctaw about 45 meters on Monday. The U.S. warship sounded the alarm siren. The warning shot rang out. The boat carrying the Iranian flag soon retreated and the clash was averted. The incident has not been confirmed by Iran. A similar incident took place on March 4 in the Persian Gulf.

Meanwhile, the UN Nuclear Monitoring Agency (IAEA) has reported that Iran plans to enrich uranium in its hideout.

The United States has said Iran’s uranium enrichment efforts are continuing as international surveillance dwindles and is nearing weapons production levels.
