    Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Harry S. Truman steams underway in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.

    Video released Saturday shows the moment last month when an Iranian Navy ship fired unguided rockets close to an American aircraft carrier and an American destroyer, NBC News reported.

    The footage — from the Dec. 26 incident — is taken from the perspective of the viewfinder and reveals how the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRCGN) blasted rockets near a coalition and commercial ships, according to U.S. Navy Central Command.

    The ships, including the U.S.S. Harry S. Truman, were crossing international waters in the Strait of Hormuz when the IRCGN conducted the live-fire exercise, U.S. Central Command said in a statement.

    U.S. military commanders criticized Iran’s navy for the “highly provocative” actions.
