Iran's weekend aggression was not solely limited to its latest missile tests. JNS reports that Iranian attack vessels also forced an American naval ship, the USNS Invincible, to change course on the Strait of Hormuz:

Multiple Iranian Revolutionary Guard fast-attack vessels came close to a U.S. Navy ship in the Strait of Hormuz Saturday, forcing the ship to change direction, an American official said Monday. 

According to the U.S. official, the Iranian boats came within 600 yards of the UNNS Invincible, a tracking ship, Reuters reported. The Invincible was also being accompanied by three ships from the British Royal Navy at the time. 

The official said that the naval vessel attempted to contact the Iranian ships over radio, but there was no response, and the interaction was “unsafe and unprofessional.”
