Israel took delivery Thursday of a fourth submarine boosting its fleet in face of the growing threats and challenges in the Middle East. In a ceremony at the Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft shipyard in Kiel, the INS Tanin was lowered into the water with the participation of OC Navy Vice-Admiral Ram Rothberg, other senior naval officers and Defense Ministry Director-General Udi Shani.
