Iran denies Iran-U.S. clash in Gulf region
font size    

Iran on Sunday denied that Iranian navy had clashed with U.S. battleships in Gulf region waters, the local Fars news agency reported.

A senior official of the southern province of Hormuzgan termed such a rumor as "psychological war" against Iran by enemies.

"Such efforts are made to break the Iranians' resolve after efforts in the form of UN Security Council Resolution 1737 to influence Iran's decision through downgrading public morale failed," the official added.

Meanwhile, an informed source in the security department of the Iranian Interior Ministry said that this was hearsay.

On Sunday morning, many Iranian cell-phone subscribers received messages about a military clash between Iranian and U.S. battleships in Gulf waters.

According to Fars, the only operation in the area in the past two days was a clash between Iranian law enforcement police and some smugglers near the Gulf port city of Jask.
