The Basque tuna fisherman Txori Argi repelled last Sunday the attack of a skiff of Somali pirates, who threw a grenade and were arrested two days later by the frigate Navarra. Sources of the shipping company Inpesca have explained this Wednesday that the pirate skiff was chasing a Korean fishing boat that was heading towards the Basque ship, which they also attacked when they saw it.

The private security of the Txori Argi repelled the attack with a flurry of fire and the pirates threw down their weapons and started the escape. The Basque vessel reported the incident to Operation Atalanta of the EU for maritime security in Somalia and continued fishing.

Shipowners have played down the incident, which is not uncommon in that area of ​​the Indian Ocean, and have stressed that nothing happened to the crew and continued with their work at the time. The Navarra frigate, which acts as the command ship of Operation Atalanta to combat piracy in the Indian Ocean, freed a Yemeni fishing vessel that had been kidnapped by Somali pirates for four days after a Special Naval War team approached boat

In the interception of the Yemeni fishing boat, of jabeque style, a German maritime patrol plane P3-C, as well as another Spanish P3-M plane, contributed information about the location and characteristics of the vessel before the assault organized from the Spanish frigate, has informed the Ministry of Defense.

The commander in charge of the force, Rear Admiral Ricardo A. Hernández López, embarked on the Navarra frigate, ordered his departure to the sea from the port of Mombasa to try to intercept the pirates, while the German plane P3-C went to the area of ​​the attacks to try to locate the skiff.

The aircraft managed to locate a Yemeni fishing vessel that was towing several skiffs, and thus it was found that its characteristics coincided with a jabeque kidnapped four days earlier in Somali waters, so the commander deduced that the pirates were using him as a mother ship to launch their attacks . With the suspicion that hostages could arrive on board, another Spanish maritime patrol plane confirmed the information provided by the German patrol, data that allowed the Navarra to sight the seized fishing boat, after 28 hours of navigation.

The Yemeni vessel was heading towards an area close to pirate camps on the Somali coast and could be followed by the frigate in a covert manner until the naval war team was able to successfully carry out the boarding operation, Defense said in a statement. After releasing the vessel, the personnel of the Spanish frigate and the naval war team try to collect evidence of the kidnapping, so the operation is still open.
