The 32nd fleet of the Iranian Navy has left the country's southern port of Bandar Abbas for the Gulf of Aden to provide security for shipping lines in the region.

The fleet of warships, which includes the Jamaran destroyer and Bushehr logistic vessel, left Bandar Abbas on Tuesday.

The flotilla will sail through the strategic Strait of Hormuz, Bandar Jask, the Sea of Oman, Makran region, north of the Indian Ocean, Gulf of Aden and the strait of Bab al-Mandab.

It has been dispatched to the Gulf of Aden to protect the Islamic Republic’s interests in remote waters.

In recent years, Iran’s Navy has increased its presence in international waters to protect naval routes and provide security for merchant vessels and tankers.

In line with international efforts against piracy, the Iranian Navy has been also conducting patrols in the Gulf of Aden since November 2008 in order to safeguard merchant containers and oil tankers owned or leased by Iran or other countries.

Iran’s Navy has managed to foil several attacks on both Iranian and foreign tankers during its missions in international waters.
