The arrival in Haifa of Israel's newest submarine, the INS Rahav, sends a message of deterrence to Israel's enemies and of strength and security to Israel's citizens, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday.

“Our submarine fleet serves as a deterrent to our enemies who seek our destruction,” he said. “They need to know that Israel is capable of hitting with very great force anyone who tries to harm us. And Israel's citizens need to know that Israel is a very strong country that is doing everything to defend them, everywhere and on every front.”

Netanyahu's comments came at a docking ceremony in Haifa. To underscore the significance of the occasion, the event was attended by President Reuven Rivlin, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen Gadi Eizenkot, and Navy Adm. Ram Rothberg.
