The US President Donald Trump has ordered the US Navy to “shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.”Last week the US Navy released a video showing small armed Iranian fast boats harassing American warships whilst they were in the Persian Gulf, near Kuwait.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard acknowledged it had a tense encounter with US warships on Sunday, in the Persian Gulf, but failed to offer any evidence that US forces sparked the incident.

On Wednesday Trump said in a tweet, “I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.”
