Commodore Yusuf Al-Mannaie [right], Royal Bahrain Navy, Commander of Combined Task Force 151 (CTF 151) has confirmed the launch of 'Operation Hamad' by Somalia Counter Piracy forces [left] off Socotra island. During 'Operation Hamad', the concentration of units around the Socotra Gap, the Somali Coast and in the Gulf of Aden will be contributed to by CTF151, EUNAVFOR units, CTF53 alongside aircraft under the control of CMF or organically from platforms in the area of operation. There is an understanding that the most important achievements of 'Operation Hamad' , apart from showing a strong physical presence, are likely to be the improved co-ordination achieved between counter piracy organisations, a better understanding of the patterns of life in relation to merchant vessel movement and the strengthening of personal and professional relationships of those who carry out the tactical operations in the very large area of interest.
