Navy Repels Pirate Attack

Commander of the Iranian Navy Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari says naval forces have successfully thwarted a pirate attack on an Iranian oil tanker in the high seas. Sayyari explained that pirates in seven boats were attempting to seize the Iranian oil tanker Tuesday morning but they were overpowered after Iran’s domestically manufactured Jamaran destroyer was called in and opened heavy fire on the pirates. The assailants were then forced to flee, Press TV quoted the commander as saying.  He noted that the 36th fleet of the Iranian Navy, comprising Jamaran destroyer and the Bushehr logistic vessel, is currently on a mission in the high seas to provide security for merchant vessels.
