U.S. Navy SEALs boarded and seized control of an oil tanker Sunday night that was held by Libyan rebels off the Cyprus coast.
The mission was approved by President Obama, according a Pentagon press statement.
“The boarding operation, approved by President Obama and conducted just after 10 p.m. EDT on March 16 in international waters southeast of Cypress, was executed by a team of U.S. Navy SEALs attached to Special Operations Command Europe,” Rear Adm. John Kirby, Pentagon Press secretary, said Monday.
The elite special forces seized the tanker – held by three Libyan rebels – after it evaded a naval blockade and the ship sailed out of a Libyan port. The Department of Defense said no one was injured in the operation.
