Pakistan Navy hands over 8 Iranian fishermen to diplomatic authorities

Rawalpindi: The Pakistan Navy on Thursday handed over eight Iranian fishermen to Iranian diplomatic authorities on humanitarian grounds. According to an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) news release, the Iranian fishermen were rescued by the Pakistan Navy during a successful operation in the open sea.

A ship of the Pakistan Navy responded in time to an emergency call from a fire-stricken boat at sea. The Pakistan Navy Ship (PNS) Yarmouk rescued all eight fishermen from the Iranian boat that caught fire and played a role in extinguishing the uncontrollable fire. “The prompt and successful rescue operation is a practical example of the Pakistan Navy’s ability to deal with all kinds of situations at sea,” the ISPR said.
