DUBAI, Jan 13 (Reuters) – Iran released ten U.S. sailors on Wednesday after holding them overnight, bringing a swift end to an incident that had rattled nerves days ahead of the expected implementation of a landmark nuclear accord between Tehran and world powers.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said it had freed the sailors after determining they had entered Iranian territorial waters by mistake. The sailors had been detained aboard two U.S. Navy patrol boats in the Gulf on Tuesday.

“Our technical investigations showed the two U.S. Navy boats entered Iranian territorial waters inadvertently,” the IRGC said in a statement carried by state television. “They were released in international waters after they apologized,” it added.

Confirming the sailors’ safe release, the Pentagon said there were no indications they were harmed while in Iranian custody.

A carefully worded statement did not explain how the sailors and their two riverine command boats ended up being detained by Iran, saying only that “the Navy will investigate the circumstances that led to the sailors’ presence in Iran.”

The sailors were later taken ashore by U.S. Navy aircraft, while other sailors took charge of the boats and headed towards Bahrain, their original destination.

IRGC Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi had earlier said that the two U.S. Navy boats entered Iranian territorial waters due to a broken navigation system.

The incident raised tensions between Iran and the United States, which, along with other world powers, reached a deal last year under which Iran will curb its nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.

Some conservatives in both countries, enemies since Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution, have criticized the deal that is due to be implemented in the coming days.

NUCLEAR DEAL

Iran’s armed forces chief, Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, said the incident should demonstrate Iranian strength to “troublemakers” in the U.S. Congress, which has sought to put pressure on Iran after the nuclear deal.

And at a presidential campaign rally in the United States, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, who accuses President Barack Obama of being weak on foreign policy, described the incident as “an indication of where the hell we’re going.”

Attributing the boats’ incursion into Iranian waters to a navigation error marked a de-escalation in rhetoric. Earlier, the Guards had said the boats were “snooping” in Iranian territory and said Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif had demanded an apology from Washington.

The IRGC, the Islamic Republic’s praetorian guard, is highly suspicious of U.S. military activity near Iran’s borders and many senior officers suspect Washington of pursuing regime change in Tehran.

The Guards operate land and naval units separate to the regular armed forces and stage frequent wargames in the Gulf, which separates Iran from its regional rival Saudi Arabia and a U.S. naval base in Bahrain.

Last month, the U.S. Navy said an IRGC vessel fired unguided rockets near the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman in the Strait of Hormuz, a critical shipping route for crude oil that connects the Gulf to the Indian Ocean. Iran denied the vessel had done so.

In April 2015, the Guards seized a container ship belonging to Maersk, one of the world’s major shipping lines, in the Gulf because of a legal dispute between the company and Iran. The ship and its 24 crew members were released after 10 days.

The Guards have also seized British servicemen on two occasions, in 2004 and 2007, and a civilian British yacht crew in 2009. On each occasion the sailors were released unharmed after several days.

    Iran is a Country of people the same as this Country. They simply wish to run their Nation WITHOUT the interference of the United States. Our agreement with them is a great benefit to both of our Countries and I whole-heartedly support the President’s position of standing by our agreement and initiating it at the earliest possible date!!!

    They have demonstrated it in so many ways. They persecute their own people, they have lied to us and our highest ranking government officials have accepted their word although it doesn’t take too many brain cells to see that their word is worth nothing more than a pile of camel dung. We talk about the homeless in America and then we send them $150 MM to continue building their atomic weapons and funding terrorism. They are the Satans of the world aligned with many of the other Satans of the world.

    I’m not saying the Iranians are angels. But riddle me this Batman: How do you think the U.S. government would respond if 2 Iranian vessels were floating off the coast of Florida?

    Do you not think they would be detained? Puhleeaase….

    It’s a damn good thing I am not president I would bomb every Middle East Capitol, with bombs that would cause so much destruction it would top Hiroshima, Give Obama’s friends something to clean up for 65 years. Especially IRAN! It will eventually have to happen!

  • primes says:

    It’s not so much that I disagree, it’s just more of a Judeo-Christian principle of throwing the first stone. Where is the MORAL AUTHORITY of a country that starts illegal and unjust wars time and again that kill and injures thousand upon thousands of a countries citizens either directly or by destroying their social order? we should be getting our OWN HOUSE IN ORDER before pointing a finger.

  • steve vaughan says:

  • T. Floyd says:

    Iran is a militant muslim nation who have/will lie cheat , steal and kill to advance their insane Iranian muslo-theocratic “religion”. Obama gave his Iranian brothers the atomic bomb an $150 billion to kill everyone who is not a muslim! Now America has no choice but to destroy them first! Send the 52s now!

  • Pete says:

    Eversince we took the Shah of Iran under our wing, they have been a nuisance. Taking of our embassy hostages. As soon as we voted in a strong President (Regan) they were only too quick to release the hostages. That’s the only thing Jimmy Carter is remembered for, is the hostage crisis.

  • David says:

  • Ken Hughes says:

  • gf says:

    Well, one thing that we can all agree upon, is that Iran does not want, Donald J Trump to become the next POTUS, The Mother Fucking Mullahs, are shitting in their kalansuwa’s.

  • James says:

    Yea–just thugs at over 35,000 strong with cells all throughout Middle East,Europe,Africa,Canada,and Mexico who are taking advantage of us, as well as Iran, with respect to every weakness we display, which are many.
    Obama doesn’t grasp or is unwilling to grasp,for unknown reasons, the war on terrorism. This is not a country we are fighting with strong naval,army,air force and marine offensive millitaries. These are religious/political Islamic zealots and ideologues who infiltrate suddenly with attacks here and there or, they will wait 50 to 100 years to infiltrate and turn a society. They do not fear for their lives and think Allah blesses them if they die for Allah and take out innocents in the name of Allah.
    Look at what is happening in Germany because of all the Syrian immigrants they have taken in. They will be forever changed. This is an insidious enemy who wants us to think they are just thugs. That is part of their strategy.
    There is a reason Obama is not addressing this and has struck such an abomination of a deal with Iran who makes mockeries of us the day before sanctions are to be lifted, being the most recent capture of our sailors. Why–because they know Obama wants this deal badly and they will get away with it.
    When you add this to Benghazi, Guantanamo,not protecting our borders,admitting unvettble Syrian refugees, giving illegal immigrants benefits that taxpayers will pay for,failure to aggressively push back to Russia, China and North Korea for their recent aggressiveness, it collectively begins to paint a picture of how Obama feels about America. I, for one, would not describe his actions/in-actions as patriotic.

  • Kevin Miller says:

    Because it’s a MUZSCUM nation and because of the Despot that reigns in said nation calling himself “president”! Every nation of ISLIMIC origins are nations of thugs,even the NON Existent “nation” of Palestine. These specialist terrorist groups,even from Iran are only symptoms of the BIGGER disease od ISLIME! And Iran is NO different! And giving this country of heathens support for nuclear bombs is the DUMBEST thing we ever did! Of course,our PRETENDsident is also a MUZZIE! So,if you want to know if Iran is a nation of thugs(make that Murderous Thugs,usually),then my answer is MOST Definitely…YES!

  • Ross Eliason says:

    Mainly because they are a muslim country who openly threaten America and our government seems to cater to them as opposed to standing up for our values and way of life!

  • Wanda says:

    What do you mean terrorist thugs…….they are ISIS for sure!

  • Brent O'Brien says:

    I remember 444 days from 1979-1981…,if this is not a repeat, what is?? If Carter was re-elected, 444 days could of been 1800+ days.
