View Full Version : Help Researching Israeli Warship / Suicide Attack
03-13-2008, 11:18 PM
I was told a story by a navy friend last week. Several years ago, apparently, an Israeli warship was lending aid to a stranded smaller boat when the boat exploded in a suicide attack, killing several Israeli sailors. I am wondering if anyone knows when this happened, what ship was involved, or any other details, maybe links to news items. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

These are the results that I could come up with. The second article is weird as I only found one instance of it in the news. Dogpile is a good META search engine to use.
Jan. 17, 2003 - A raft laden with explosives and guided by a suicide bomber,
exploded after Israeli Navy ships fired at the craft, four kilometers from
Dugit, in the northern Gaza Strip.
JERUSALEM (AP) _ Palestinian militants on an explosive-packed boat blew themselves up when intercepted by an Israeli navy patrol off the Gaza Strip on Saturday, wounding four Israeli soldiers, the army and Palestinians said.
