Tehran, Jan.29 (ANI): Iran flew a surveillance drone over a United States aircraft carrier and took ‘precise’ photographs of it as part of an ongoing naval drill.
The reported drone overflight comes after a series of naval incidents between Iran and the US in the greater Persian Gulf, including test rocket fire by the Islamic Republic.
An Iranian light submarine closely participated in the surveillance operation, reports Dawn.
Iran’s navy successfully fired surface-to-surface Noor cruise missiles during the drill.
Iran’s navy began a naval drill this week over a 3-million-square-kilomete, including parts of the Strait of Hormuz, the Gulf of Oman and the Indian Ocean. (ANI)
