Hijacking of the ship: there was a video of the landing of German special forces on a Turkish ship


A video of the landing of special forces from the German Navy frigate Hamburg (F220, Sachsen class) on the M / V Roseline A container ship under the Turkish flag in the Mediterranean Sea appeared on the Web. The footage clearly shows that the crew of a merchant ship welcomes the "guests" without enthusiasm and only due to the numerical superiority of the military and the presence of weapons in them, the Turks obey the Germans, allowing them to take control of the ship and inspect the cargo.


It should be noted that boarding a Turkish ship happened November 23, 2020 southwest of the Peloponnese. On the same day, the Turkish Foreign Ministry protested to the European Union and Germany over the hijacking of the ship. Ankara clarified that the merchant ship transported paints and varnishes and humanitarian aid from the port of Ambarli (Turkey) to Misrata (Libya) without violating the embargo.

We protest against this unauthorized and violent act

- added to the Turkish Foreign Ministry.


It should be noted that the European Union is conducting an IRINI mission off the coast of Libya to ensure compliance with the UN embargo on arms supplies to this North African country. At the same time, Berlin reported that the crew of the Turkish vessel interfered with a full-fledged search.

However, the published footage shows that as a result, the container ship's crew ends up with their hands behind their heads. In turn, the German Ministry of Defense confirmed that by the time they received the order to leave the ship, the military did not find anything suspicious on it.

We remind you that this June in the Mediterranean happened the incident between the warships of the French and Turkish navies. Then the Turks aimed their guns and strike systems at the French frigate URO Courbet ("Courbet" - type "Lafayette").

    laughing It is precisely the paints and varnishes that Libya, now embraced by the war, is in short supply. In general, when I hear the words of Livy, I have a paradox of consciousness lol After all, people there lived better than under communism (which Khrushchev promised us at one time), but they got bored, it’s boring to live like cheese in butter. And then the Americans said the Libyans that you have not enough democracy in your country and organized a revolution. Now there is democracy and life is not so boring, they drive pickup trucks with machine guns and shoot at each other.

      Idlib also lacks. Do you know how much paint is needed to "recolor" militants?

      About life in Libya as under communism is nothing more than fictions that are widely circulating on the Internet. My classmate still worked in a medical school there under a contract. There was no special communism there. There was a certain part of the population who lived quite well by African standards, and there was a lot of those lived very, very badly, They protested constantly, the same Berbers, for example. It ended in the Civil War. There was no communism there and all these fictions about fabulous salaries and flooding the population with all kinds of gifts are nothing more than fictions. This is the same as Bismarck, Churchill and Stalin are credited with so many statements that they never said.

        .... protested constantly, the same Berbers, for example. It ended in the Civil War.

        They protested, this is one thing, but to smash the country to smithereens is a little different fool ... But now everyone has healed about the same, good After all, no one promised that it would be better, they said that it would be different. Now there is something to fight for.

    In the 30s and 40s, the Germans did the same.
