Late at night on Friday, August 6, the MV Syria Star requested medical assistance for two crewmembers that were injured in the initial hijack. The MV Syria Star was hijacked on Thursday, August 5, in the eastern part of Gulf of Aden and is now free.

EU NAVFOR warship FGS Schleswig-Holstein was in the vicinity of the MV Syria Star and sent her helicopter with a medical team onboard in order to assist the vessel. On arriving on the Syria Star they found a third member of the crew who had been injured in a work related incident. FGS Schleswig-Holstein is standing by to conduct a medical evacuation if required.
