The crew of the guided missile destroyer, James E. Williams rendered assistance to 10 Iranian mariners yesterday who had to abandon their burning vessel in the Gulf of Oman.
Deployed as part of the Enterprise Carrier Strike Group to the U.S. 5th Fleet, the James E. Williams is currently conducting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts.
The mariners who claim to be Iranian are being well cared for, receiving medical treatment and awaiting transport to aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN 65) according to the US Navy. Efforts are underway to coordinate the repatriation of the Iranian sailors.
