Somali Pirates Get Wrecked By Machine Gun Fire, Become Shark Bait

first published on May 9, 2017 by

The following footage shows a boat of Somali pirates getting wrecked by machine-gun fire, and having to jump overboard when a tracer round sets their vessel ablaze. This footage has been circling the internet for sometime, always with a different description about who was doing the filming, ranging from private military contractors to the US Navy. While there are certainly multiple Americans on the sufficiently armed vessel, we have not been able to confirm the source of this video, and it would be in your best interest to be critical of any further information you receive regarding it.
