SINGAPORE is joining international anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden for the ninth time since 2009.
On Monday, 151 servicemen from the Singapore Armed Forces left for a three-month stint to protect merchant ships against pirate attacks in the waters off Somalia.
Led by Col Cheong Kwok Chien, the servicemen sailed on the Republic of Singapore Navy’s stealth frigate RSS Tenacious, which was also carrying a Sikorsky S-70B Seahawk naval helicopter.
They will join the multi-national Combined Task Force 151 to patrol the area. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
