CNS: “Iran’s defense minister vowed Thursday that any U.S. or other warships that enter Iranian waters would be “severely punished,” as the Pentagon confirmed that a U.S. patrol vessel had fired warning shots after being approached by an Iranian attack boat in an “unsafe” manner.”

The Mehr news agency quoted Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan as telling reporters in Isfahan, “It is a natural and routine program of the border patrol to do surveillance in the southern waters and to collect intelligence on foreign ships’ operations.” …
In an earlier incident Thursday, four Iranian vessels approached the destroyer USS Nitze in the Strait of Hormuz
.”

State Department spokesperson Trudeau: “We would note we don’t know what the intentions of the Iranian ships were, but that behavior is unacceptable as our ships were in international waters. We believe that these type of actions are of concern. They unnecessarily escalate tensions.”

Hillary continues to accept donations from foreign countries.
