Attack on US Naval Forces in the Straits of Hormuz [Awaiting Confirmation]

SUA has learned through various sources that an unprovoked attack on the US Navy occurred this morning in the Straits of Hormuz.

CVN-65, the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier and its group were reportedly attacked by no less then 4 sophisticated jets. Confidential sources within the military have confirmed the attack off of the “Broken Isthmus”.

There is no confirmed word on damage or if there are any casualties, but SUA has learned that this attack may have caused injuries and possibly one death. We have contacted the military and are awaiting official response.
