Italian fishing boat “rammed by Turkish boats”


May 11, 2021

It happened off the coast of Syria. The shipowner Giacalone at Adnkronos: “We are ruined, we can’t go on like this, the institutions get busy” “My fishing boat was first stoned by several Turkish fishing boats, who rammed it and then tried to get on it aboard. The commander was forced to pull the nets and leave the area “. Talking to Adnkronos is Luciano Giacalone, owner of the ‘Michele Giacalone’, the fishing boat that left Mazara del Vallo and was stoned during a fishing trip in a sea area in front of Syria. In the same area there was also another boat, the ‘San Giorgio I’. On 3 May the ‘Michele Giacalone’ was machine-gunned by Libyans in the Benghazi area. “We are ruined, we cannot go on like this – he adds -. In whatever area we go they hunt us. We ask that the institutions work to make an agreement especially with Libya and put Mazara’s boats in the conditions to be able to work”.
