Khark which is the biggest logistic warship in West Asia was sent on a mission in the Gulf of Aden, the Indian Ocean and Bab al-Mandab Strait along with Sabalan destroyer within the framework of the 54th naval fleet of warships.
The Iranian Navy has been conducting anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden since November 2008, when Somali raiders hijacked the Iranian-chartered cargo ship, MV Delight, off the coast of Yemen.
According to UN Security Council resolutions, different countries can send their warships to the Gulf of Aden and coastal waters of Somalia against the pirates and even with prior notice to Somali government enter the territorial waters of that country in pursuit of Somali sea pirates.
