As early as Sunday afternoon, the crew of the “Hamburg” stopped the Turkish container ship “Rosaline A” about 200 kilometers north of the east Libyan city of Benghazi. After that, German soldiers went on board and began checking the cargo. According to the troop, the team reacts cooperatively.
Notice from the headquarters of the EU »Irini« mission
The navy had received the reference to the “Rosaline A” from the headquarters of the EU Mediterranean mission “Irini”, which is currently being led by a Greek officer. The EU operation is intended to curb the flourishing arms smuggling into Libya and thus ultimately end the bloody civil war.
The navy had already stopped a cargo ship on its way to Libya in the summer. The suspicion of weapons smuggling was quickly confirmed at the time, as the freighter had a special type of kerosene on board that is only used for fighter jets.
The Bundeswehr soldiers of the frigate “Hamburg” should clarify whether there were weapons on board in the case of the “Rosaline A” by Monday morning.
According to the tracking data, the 20-year-old “Rosaline A” started from Turkey for Libya at the weekend and was supposed to unload cargo in Misrata in the middle of the week.
