Iranian Navy Thwarts Second Pirate Attack in 24 Hours

The Iranian Navy’s 28th fleet fended off a second pirate attack targeting the country’s ship in the last 24 hours, as reported by the Fars news agency on Jan. 9 citing a Navy source.

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.
