Israeli Submarine In Rare Deployment South Of Suez

An Israeli Navy Dolphin-II Class submarine has pulled in to Eilat, Israel’s only Red Sea port. This is significant as it allows the Israeli Navy to deploy the submarine to the Red Sea, Indian Ocean or even Persian Gulf without first having to go through the Suez Canal.

Reports suggest that she passed through the Suez Canal on December 19, so she will have been in the Red Sea for over 2 weeks.
