Iranian fleet of warships docks in Salalah

Salalah: An Iranian fleet of warships docked in the Port of Salalah on Monday. ‘The operational and training fleet comprises the Sabalan destroyer and Bandar Abbas and Lavan warships,’ an Iranian source informed Times of Oman.

The fleet is involved in anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden. The Iranian Navy has expanded its presence to the Gulf of Aden since November 2008, when an Iranian-chartered cargo ship, MV Delight, was hijacked by Somali pirates.
