The Iranian Navy has reportedly flown an unmanned surveillance drone over an American aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf amid ongoing military drills in the waters south of the country.

According to a Friday report by Fars News Agency, the drone managed to capture a video during the surveillance mission over the US aircraft carrier.

A Ghadir-class submarine belonging to the navy was also deployed close to the US aircraft carrier with a mission to gather intelligence and capture footage, the report said.

The Iranian submarine was able to take “clear” photographs of the aircraft carrier without catching the attention of the staff on board, the report added.

The Bahrain-based US Navy’s 5th Fleet, which commands the operations of American warships in the Persian Gulf, declined to comment on the incident.

The developments come as the navy is conducting its annual military maneuvers, code-named Velayat 94, on the third day across a large swathe of territorial waters and high seas in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and the Indian Ocean.
