Iran's 71st naval flotilla returns home

The naval fleet, comprising 'Alborz' destroyer and 'Khark' helicopter carrier, berthed at southern Iranian port city this morning and was welcomed in a ceremony attended by navy commanders and staff.

The flotilla traveled a total of 8,000 nautical miles during its overseas journey.

In recent years, Iran’s naval forces have increased their presence in international waters to secure naval routes and protect merchant vessels and oil tankers against pirates.

In line with international efforts to combat piracy, the Iranian Navy has also been conducting anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden to safeguard the vessels involved in maritime trade, especially ships and oil tankers owned or leased by Iran.Follow the Official Rokna NEWS Telegram Channel For More and fresh NEWS.
