Iranian Navy foils piracy attempt in Oman Sea

The Iranian Navy has rescued a Filipino-flagged cargo ship from pirates in the Oman Sea.

Freighter Panama-Gade was under way in the Oman Sea on 8 March when it was chased for several hours by a number of motorised vessels equipped with light weapons.


 


The Iranian Navy picked up the vessel’s distress call and immediately dispatched naval ships to the vicinity.

The armed vessels fled the scene upon seeing the naval vessels. The naval vessels then escorted Panama-Gade to the Pakistani border.
