Iranian Drone Films Close-Up Shots Of U.S. Aircraft Carrier In The Persian Gulf

Daily Mail: Is Iran SPYING on US aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf? Revolutionary Guard releases 'surveillance video' they claim was taken from a drone above the USS Dwight D Eisenhower

* Video released by Tasnim news agency shows fighter jets parked on American carrier deck in the Persian Gulf
* US Navy says USS Dwight D Eisenhower hasn't been in the Gulf since 2016
* The drone that took the footage is apparently an Ababil-3 with an eight-hour flight capability at 12,000 feet and range of 155 miles
* Earlier this month, the US government designated Iran's Revolutionary Guard as a 'terrorist organisation'
* Tehran immediately announced retaliatory measures, declaring the United States a 'state sponsor of terrorism' and US forces as 'terrorist groups'

Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard has successfully managed a surveillance flight over a U.S. aircraft carrier, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported Saturday.

The report included footage apparently from a Guard drone that flew over the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower and another U.S. warship in the Persian Gulf.

The images show fighter planes parked on the carrier deck with crew members down below seemingly unaware they are being spied upon.

Tasnim did not say when the footage was shot.
