Iran releases the video of Sunday’s maritime identification check in the Persian Gulf waters involving Iranian boats and US warships.
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the US-released footage of the incident is fabricated and the audio of it is fake.
Brigadier General Ali Fadavi, an IRGC senior official, has said that the US vessels’ registration numbers had been unreadable to the Iranian guards.
He added that the guards approached the US ships only to examine the numbers.
The Iranian footage also includes the original radio communication between the Iranian guards and the US warship.
