The German frigate, “Hamburg”, heads to the Mediterranean to participate in the European Irini mission and to monitor the prevention of arms from reaching Libya.
Today, the German frigate, with about 250 soldiers, is heading towards the Mediterranean Sea to participate in monitoring the implementation of the United Nations resolution banning the export of arms to Libya.
On Monday, the German navy announced that the 143-meter ship would sail from the port of “Wilhelmshaven”, and was likely to arrive in the mission area in the middle of this month.
And the frigate will be part of the European Union’s “Irini” mission, which started in early May، And this task is facing a special challenge due to the continued crisis of Corona, as the navy indicated that this crisis could lead to crew members not leaving their ship for about five months in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19 disease on board the ship.
The frigate is expected to return to Wilhelmshaven harbor on December 20, according to current plans.
