>TCG Giresun foils pirate attack on ships

>Last week four Turkish flagged and manned cargo ships, M/V Ulusoy-8, M/V Horizon-1, M/V Halis Kalkavan and M/V Samanyolu were in Gulf of Aden. The vessels were registered to the international organisations vectoring the merchant traffic in the area.

According to Turkish Navy pirates approached to Ulusoy-8 shortly after the Greek owned and Saint-Vincent-flagged cargo vessel Titan was captured. TCG Giresun, which was 80 miles east of the merchant ship, dispatched her helicopter to help Ulusoy-8. The pirates dispersed after the arrival of the helicopter.
