On 7th March the civilian ferry M/V Samsun and frigate F-493 TCG Gelibolu arrived at Alexandira Egypt.
Upon thier arrival the Commander of Egyptian Naval Forces, vice Admiral Mohab Mameesh visited TCG Gelibolu.
It is not clear however is the ships are going back to Libya for a second round.
M/V Samsun is still in Alexandria and yesterday one Turkish maritime news portal reported that 13 of the crew including the second mate and the chef submitted their resignations, citing that they did not want to work under adverse health (hygienic ?) conditions.
