4 Iranian Fishermen Taken Captive by Pirates near Somalia Released

Four Iranian fishermen taken captive by pirates in international waters near Somalia have been released by Iran’s intelligence forces.

Iranian intelligence agents secured the fishermen’s release through a long process and despite tight security controls by the pirates.

The Iranian forces managed to set the captives free and bring them back to their homeland through an intelligence-operational plan.

The fishermen were all Sunni Muslims from the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan. They had been held by pirates since 2015.

The four fishermen will be transferred to the city of Zahedan as soon as possible.
