The boat was named Masha Allah, but the exact location of the rescue has not been determined

A fishing vessel named “Masha Allah” has rescued approximately 15 people in international waters, believed to be migrants attempting to reach Muscat, Oman illegally.

The crew of the “Masha Allah” spotted a speedboat struggling in rough seas, with 15 to 17 individuals aboard.

According to conversations overheard, the group had originally consisted of 20 people attempting to reach Muscat by boat. However, their engine failed in the open ocean, leaving them adrift.

Tragically, three passengers died from thirst and hunger. Their bodies were thrown overboard.

The fishermen aboard the “Masha Allah” discovered the stranded group and rescued them.

The exact location of the rescue and the nationality of the rescuers remain unknown.

However, the fishermen spoke a language identified as Balochi, while the rescued individuals spoke Urdu.
