Iran’s navy says 19 killed, 15 wounded in friendly-fire missile accident in Gulf

An Iranian missile fired during a live-fire training exercise in the Gulf of Oman struck a support vessel near its target, killing at least 19 sailors and injuring 15 others, Iran’s army said Monday. The Konarak, a Hendijan-class support ship, was too close to a target during the exercise when the incident happened on Sunday near the port of Jask, some 1,270 kilometers southeast of Tehran.

It’s pretty sad that your own missile technology first shots down your own airliner on take off then this. This is children playing with adults toys . What ever the number of dead Iran says, safe to assume to quadruple that number .

Hey at least they did it to themselves instead of being sunk by a cruise ship.

And we are supposed to be afraid of these folks? So far they have shot down their own airliner now they took out their own ship. Why wage war against them give them time they will take themselves out. Scary thought these incompetent idiots in charge of a nuclear weapon. Although they most likely would blow themselves up with it. The innocent lives lost would be crushing. God help us all. For the first time I find a story both funny AND. Terrifying!

How much you want to bet that they tried to attack a US vessel and as a result they got smashed and are now just trying to save face by calling it a "training accident".

That's a very busy area. They could've went beyond where there's heavy travel and trade.
