Pirate attack foiled
Iran’s naval forces have rescued the "Xin Lian Yun Gang" from an attack by pirates in the Gulf of Aden. Five boats, each containing five armed pirates, attacked the ship in an attempt to hijack the vessel in the morning of Sep 17, 2014, but the Iranian Navy’s 31st fleet of war vessels foiled the move. The Iranian destroyer was deployed to the area immediately after receiving an emergency call from the troubled vessel and forced the assailants to flee the scene by using light weapons and special operation Teams. The vessel was on its way from Singapore to the port of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia when it came under attack in the Gulf of Aden. It continued its voyage after being rescued from the pirates.
