原文:

Iran's IRGC recently acknowledged it had a tense encounter with US warships in the Persian Gulf, but alleged without offering evidence that American forces sparked the incident. The incident on April 15 saw the US Navy release video of small Iranian fast boats coming close to American warships as they operated in the northern Persian Gulf near Kuwait.

In the paramilitary Guard's telling, its forces were conducting a drill and faced the unprofessional and provocative actions of the United States and their indifference to warnings. It also released a video showing an Iranian boat traveling in parallel with a US warship. At one point, a deck-mounted machine gun on the Iranian vessel is seen pointed toward the American ship.

中譯:

伊朗伊斯蘭革命衛隊最近承認,先前在波斯灣,與美軍戰艦確實發生過緊張遭遇,但在未提供證據的狀況下,聲稱這起事件是美軍引發的。

這起發生在4月15日的事件,從美軍發布的影像中可看到,當美軍在波斯灣北部的科威特附近操演時,數艘伊朗小型快艇朝美軍戰艦接近。

依伊斯蘭革命衛隊的說法,其所屬部隊當時正在實施訓練,卻遭遇到美軍非專業的挑釁行為,亦不理會該衛隊的警告。革命衛隊也發布一段錄影,顯示1艘伊朗船艦與1艘美國戰艦平行航行,在某個時間點上,可看到這艘伊朗船艦甲板架設的機槍,指向美軍艦艇。
