The pirates aboard 8 boats were approaching another Iranian ship in the waters of the Gulf of Aden this morning trying to seize it .

Twenty four hours ago, another attack was prevented when twelve pirate boats attacked an oil tanker at the same location.

With the help from the Iranian Navy the ship was successfully defended.

The Iranian Navy continues operating in the Gulf of Aden, securing the country’s ships from pirate attacks.
