4 country, 4-day drill held in Israel


Sailors from France, Greece and the United States arrived on their vessels and were joined by the Israelis off the Israeli port city of Haifa for the four-day exercise, called Mighty Waves.

They simulated extracting wounded civilians to sea for treatment, fishing people out of the water and transferring humanitarian aid, with representatives of seven other navies taking part as observers.

It was the first time Israel hosted and organized a drill of such scope, said Lieutenant Colonel Liav Zilberman.
