The Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) Counter Piracy Combined Task Force (CTF) 151 are conducting Operation HAKA, a Counter Piracy Operation in the Gulf of Aden and the Socotra Gap over the period 16-23 November 2018. The aims of Operation HAKA are to deter and disrupt piracy, enhance information exchange between counter piracy stakeholders, and engage with regional partners and local mariners. Continued successful suppression of piracy depends on a number of stakeholders, including the merchant shipping community itself, being able to work together as part of the overall counter piracy system.

OFF SOMALIA -- Protecting vessels carrying food to Somali communities is part of Operational Atlanta’s core tasks and earlier this week the Italian frigate, ITS Federico Martinengo did just that. MV Petra I was transiting Somali territorial waters when she met with EU NAVFOR’s forces. Almost 1.8 million tonnes of food aid have reached the Somali people through the direct protection from European Union Naval Forces over the last 10 years. This is due to continue for at least another two years after the Operation Atalanta mandate was extended to December 2020. PHOTO - EU NAVFOR
