The Iranian military has test fired several short range anti-ship missiles near the heavily trafficked Strait of Hormuz the Fars News Agency of the Islamic Republic of Iran reported today. Currently, the US Navy is conducting minesweeping operations in the Persian Gulf.

The Japanese navy fired water cannons at several Taiwanese fishing vessels in the waters around the disputed Pinnacle Islands yesterday. The islands where there is a potential large deposit of petroleum resources are claimed by Japan, the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of China [Taiwan]. Known as Senkaku in Japan, Diaoyu in the PRC and Tiaoyutai in Taiwan the collection for five uninhabited islets and three volcanic rocky outcrops have become a bone of contention between Japan and the PRC in recent weeks escalating to protests against Japan in Beijing and other cities.
