Iran keeps trying to provoke President Trump, and in an act displaying their firepower, they struck their own ship!

An Iranian missile fired during a training exercise in the Gulf of Oman struck a support vessel near its target, killing at least one sailor and wounding others amid heightened tensions between Tehran and the US.

The friendly fire incident happened Sunday near the port of Jask, some 1,270 kilometers (790 miles) southeast of Tehran on the Gulf of Oman, state TV reported Monday.

The missile struck the Konarak, a Hendijan-class support ship, taking part in the exercise.

Nineteen sailors are dead and 15 others left wounded after an Iranian naval support vessel was reportedly hit and sunk by a surface-to-surface missile late Sunday in a “friendly fire” incident.

The sinking happened during an exercise in the Sea of Oman, near the Iranian port city of Jask, according to one Iran state media outlet that also confirmed the “martyrdom” of the dead sailors.

A local hospital admitted 12 sailors and treated another three with slight wounds, the state-run IRNA news agency reported.

Local journalists said the frigate Jamaran was testing a new anti-ship surface-to-surface missile which mistakenly locked onto and hit Konarak, a logistical support patrol boat.

Silly Jackalope, Iranian missiles are guided by Allah, there was clearly a gay *spit* on the boat in their very midst!

Welp, time to call the People's Coffin Drill Team.

Maybe they could be more accurate if they aimed about 500 miles north.
