US President, Donald Trump, has declared that he has given his military authorization to dispatch assaults against Iranian Navy pontoons.
The president made the declaration in light of reports that Iranian naval force gunboats were assaulting and hassling US vessels along the waterway of Hormuz with the conviction that the US won’t assault Iran as the US centers around the Coronavirus pandemic.
Trump tweeting this yesterday afternoon said ;
I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.

‘I have trained the United States Navy to kill and wreck all Iranian gunboats in the event that they irritate our boats adrift.’
Trump’s tweets come fourteen days after he cautioned Iran of ‘a substantial cost’ if the Islamic country assaulted US troops positioned in Iraq or US vessels in the center East.
The Iranian government is yet to react to Trump’s tweet as at press time.
