A US missile destroyer is heading to the Black Sea

The US Arleigh Burke-class missile destroyer USS Laboon (DDG 58) is headed for the Black Sea.

The Sixth Fleet of the US Navy announced this on Twitter, Rubryka reports.

In the Black Sea, the destroyer will take part in maritime security operations in the region.

The U.S. Navy regularly works with NATO allies and partners in the Black Sea, the tweet said.

The USS Laboon was incorporated into the US Navy in 1995, assigned to the Norfolk Naval Station, Virginia.

The destroyer was also involved in various operations, including striking Tomahawk cruise missiles at targets in Iraq (in 1996) and Syrian military facilities from the Red Sea (in 2018).
