NATO’s ability to conduct operations has not been undermined. Our forces remain ready and our crucial work goes on. In the Mediterranean Sea, patrols are on the lookout for suspicious vessels during Operation Sea Guardian.
From the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, NATO has implemented robust measures to limit the virus’ spread and minimise risks to our soldiers and civilians, and the communities they serve. But NATO’s ability to conduct operations has not been undermined. Our forces remain ready. And our crucial work goes on. In the Mediterranean Sea, Operation Sea Guardian is underway. The operation involves NATO ships carrying out patrols to look out for any suspicious vessels which could be linked to terrorist activities or human trafficking. The ship is supported by three submarines from Greece, Italy and Turkey, and will conduct focused patrols until 8 April 2020 This footage includes shots of the Turkish Navy corvette T.C.G. Büyükada en route to the eastern Mediterranean Sea as well as demonstrations by Turkish forces of a boarding operation and fast-roping from a helicopter.
