Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has dismissed US claims of a rocket test near American warships in the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf.

"The Guards' naval force had no exercise in the past week when the Americans claim that a missile or rocket was fired in the Hormuz Strait area," head of the IRGC’s public relations office Brig. Gen. Ramezan Sharif said on Thursday.

The rebuttal came a day after the US accused Iran of launching a "highly provocative" rocket test last week near its warships and commercial traffic passing through the Strait of Hormuz.

Cmdr. Kyle Raines, a U.S. Central Command spokesman, said in a statement that Iranian Revolutionary Guard naval vessels fired "several unguided rockets" about 1,500 yards from the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier, the USS Bulkeley destroyer and a French frigate, the FS Provence.
