An Iranian Navy’s fleet of warships has rescued the crew of an Omani launch that had been stranded at the northern tip of the Sea of Oman and off the strategic Makran coast due to a technical defect.
According to the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy’s Public Relations Department, the vessel was in trouble in international waters when the Iranian naval team patrolling in international waters around the coastal zone received a distress call and was dispatched to the area.
The Iranian naval team rescued the launch and its crew members.
Given the severe damage that the Omani vessel’s propulsion system had sustained, an Iranian Navy’s tugboat towed the ship to Makran coast, and handed it over to Iranian coastal guards.
