After the warnings were ignored, the USS Mahan then used .50 caliber machine gun to fire over the bow of the approaching vessels, according to the U.S. Defense Department.  After the shots were fired, the vessels quickly turned and left the area.

The Iranian boats were within 900 yards of the Mahan, which had been escorting two U.S. ships.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps has been conducting drills in the strait simulating maneuvers necessary to shut down the entrance to the Persian Gulf.

The Department of Defense added that the warning shots fired on Sunday were just one of seven interactions the Mahan had with Iranian vessels over the weekend, but the others were judged to be safe.

In September, after the USS Mason had to fire warning shots at Islamic Revolutionary Guard boats, Trump vowed that any Iranian vessels that harass the U.S. Navy in the Gulf would be “shot out of the water.”  We shall see if Trump stands true to his words.

USS Mahan (DDG-72) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer currently in service with the United States Navy.
