Navy Foils Pirate Attack on Iranian Oil Tanker
The Navy’s 32nd fleet of warships thwarted a pirate attack on an Iranian oil tanker in the Gulf of Aden, off the coast of Yemen.
The military forces on board Jamaran destroyer and Bushehr logistic vessel, known as the 32nd naval fleet of Iran, rescued the oil tanker 120 miles southeast of al-Mukalla, a main sea port in the southern coast of Yemen.
Pirates on board a number of speed boats were forced to flee the scene after the timely presence of the Iranian forces. The oil tanker survived without suffering any damage.
It was the fourth anti-piracy operation the 32nd fleet carried out during its overseas mission across the northern parts of the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden.
