VIBEN in Beirut

Wednesday, January 10, 2007, the guided missile vessel VIBEN made a brief call to Beirut in Lebanon. The Danish vessel was called in, to pick up the German commander of the multinational naval force, UNIFIL, operating off the coast of Lebanon.

Due to the high risk in the area, all battle stations were manned as the vessel called on the Lebanese harbor at around 16.05 local time. The ship was on a high alert during the 30 minutes call to Beirut.

However, all went well, and the VIBEN made an entry to the Danish naval history, as the first Danish naval vessel ever to visit Beirut, Lebanon.

VIBEN has since the end of December 2006 been the Danish contribution to the multinational naval force, UNIFIL, operating off the coast of Lebanon.
