The Israel Navy rescued a citizen yacht Monday overnight after receiving a call of distress that the engine had failed while in international waters, 29 air miles away from the Lebanese coast, outside the territorial waters of Lebanon. 

Water had begun to seep into the boat.

The yacht had set sail from Haifa's port, heading toward Larnaca in Cyprus. Upon receiving the call, the navy sent a missile boat to assist the yacht. The squadron located the yacht, and helped it make its way safely back to Haifa.
