The Indian Navy never misses any opportunity to showcase its capabilities at sea. This time, the Indian navy helped a vessel attacked in the Gulf of Aden by providing instant medical assistance

Again, the Indian navy displayed its readiness and valor on Thursday by providing critical assistance to a merchant’s vessel. According to the reports, the vessel was attacked by a drone/missile in the Gulf of Aden. 

Indian officials revealed that the Palau-flagged vessel MV Islander came under attack, which caused severe injuries to the crew members. The vessel also started burning due to the explosive attack.

Indian Navy responded to the distress call swiftly and dispatched an explosive ordnance disposal team aboard a navy destroyer, which sanitized the victim ship for any residual risk and cleared it for further transit. 

The attack on the MV Islander came amid several such attacks on merchant vessels in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden by the Iran-backed and Yemen-based Houthi rebels.
