The pirate source added the pirates were using a mother ship and number of speed boats, “They were a group of pirates using a mother ship and speed boats. When they saw the vessels, they used the speed boats to attack and when the attack failed they returned to their mother ship. We don’t know how many of these pirates are injured, but they are now heading back towards Garacad,” said the pirate. Another pirate source told Somalia Report that this group of pirates were using the Iranian fishing dhow Al Khaliil, which pirates hijacked last week, but Somalia Report was unable to confirm this.

Iranian Navy Rear Admiral Seyed Mahmoud Moussavi said 35 pirates were involved in the thwarted assault. The officials added that the crew of the Iranian oil tanker are in good health and remain unharmed. Iranian Navy has recently become involved in anti-piracy operations along the Somali coast.
