The Israel Navy on Thursday released footage from a recent training exercise in which two missile ships downed an out of use naval vessel.
Capt. Ziv Rom, commander of the Navy's Third Flotilla described the exercise:"This scenario took place on the northern front, where we located an enemy vessel and destroyed it as quickly as possible."
Rom said that the Harpoon anti-ship missiles were fired from great range, "almost from the maximum range of a missile ship."
Rom said that all of the flotillas ships were taken out to sea during the two week exercise and drilled on all possible scenarios: providing help to the ground forces, operations on the coast and operations deep in enemy territory.
