USS John Stennis enters Persian Gulf
On December 28, the USS John Stennis is going to take part in 6-day naval drills in the Strait of Hormuz and the nearby Gulf of Oman.
Iran’s Navy has announced it will stage live-fire exercises in the same region to practise sealing off the strait, which accounts for over 20% of the world's oil shipments.
Meanwhile, the amphibious assault ship USS Peleliu has entered the Oman’s port of Salalah on the Arabian Sea.
