The "Action of 1570" was an naval battle between forces of Malta, then under the protection of the Knights of St. John, and the Ottoman Empire. The battle took place in July 1570, after four Maltese galleys encountered an Ottoman fleet under Uluj Ali. Three Maltese galleys were captured by the Ottomans and one fled.
