Iran navy halt 'provocations' of U.S. shipsIranian naval forces appear to have deliberately halted their provocations of U.S. Navy ships in the Gulf in recent months, a U.S. military official said Thursday. The last tense encounter between the U.S. Navy and Iranian forces in the Gulf was recorded on Aug. 14, 2017, when an unarmed Iranian drone shadowed the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier at night and came close enough to F-18 fighter jets to put the lives of American pilots at risk, the Navy said at the time.Of the incidents at sea last year, the worst involved Iranian forces capturing and holding overnight 10 U.S. sailors who strayed into the Islamic Republic's territorial waters.
