Turkish navy saves Indian vessel from Somali pirates

A Turkish frigate prevented a hijacking attempt Saturday by pirates to hijack a vessel in the Bay of Aden.

TCG Gokova serving in the international naval force against pirates, under NATO's Standing NATO Maritime Group 2, intervened a skiff pirate boat which opened fire on Indian vessel M/V JAL, in an hijacking attempt, 105 nautical miles off the coast.

Turkish Chief of Staff announced that TGC Gokova fended off the pirates with manoeuvres, and a chopper which took off from TGC Gokova and a team of underwater assault commandos seized the boat arresting 6 pirates along with their arms.
