President Trump instructs US Navy to destroy all Iranian gunboats if they harass US ships

BREAKING: US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he has instructed the US Navy “to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats” if they harass American ships at sea.

“I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea”, President Trump tweeted.

Last week, nearly a dozen Iranian vessels belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard terror group harassed a group of American ships in the international waters of the North Arabian Gulf. The US Fifth Fleet later published video footage of the encounter, which showed the gunboats circling a larger US ship.
