Naval Fleet in Malacca Strait

The navy’s 33rd fleet, comprised of the Bandar Abbas support vessel and the Naqdi warship, entered the Strait of Malacca, Fars news agency reported on Saturday.
The strait is a narrow, 805 km stretch of water between the Malay Peninsula and the Indonesian island of Sumatra.  The fleet set sail for the high seas in late January on a mission to protect the security of international shipping lanes mainly for Iranian commercial ships and tankers.  It is the second time that an Iranian naval fleet passes through the strategic strait. In February 2013, navy’s 24th fleet crossed the waterway to enter the Pacific Ocean for the first time.
