Iranian ships turn away from Yemen

Iranian ships turn away from Yemen
Washington (CNN)The USS Theodore Roosevelt entered the Persian Gulf Saturday to conduct what a U.S. defense official called routine maritime security operations, days after U.S. warships were deployed to the Yemeni coast to counter an Iranian convoy. 
Multiple U.S. officials have said the American ships had been deployed to the region to dissuade the Iranian convoy, which included armed ships, from docking in Yemen, where Iran has been supporting and arming the Houthi rebellion. 
The Iranian ships turned away from Yemen on Thursday, and were still sailing northeast toward Iran on Saturday, a U.S. defense official said.

The Iranian ships simply just left? If, they either left with additional Intel or empty-handed (suggesting they left something(s) behind.
