Turkish Navy dockyard repairs Bangladesh Navy warship

The Turkish Navy’s dockyard at Aksaz repaired BNS Bijoy missile corvette which was damaged during a blast at the port of Beirut on 4 August this year.

BNS Bijoy was towed 450 nautical miles to the Aksaz Naval Base by a Turkish Coast Guard vessel on 30 August.

BNS Bijoy was participating in a UN sanctioned peacekeeping mission under UNFILs Maritime Task Force since December 2017.

Its tour of Lebanon was nearing completion when the blast incident occurred. She was replaced by BNS Sangram less than a week after blast.

BNS Bijoy will return to Bangladesh shortly.
