The Defense Blog, citing reports from journalist Doron Kadosh, affiliated with the Israeli radio network operated by the Israel Defense Forces – Army Radio (also known as Galei Tzahal or Galatz), reports on the deployment of submarines in the Middle East. Israel’s decision was reportedly dictated by rising tensions with Iran and the presence of Palestinian Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Kadosh was to relay that submarines had been deployed at combat positions along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea in the Middle East in response to escalating threats from Iran and Hezbollah. The submarines are a vital element of Israel’s combat capabilities. The Defence Blog emphasizes that their deployment in the Middle East “is a clear signal of this country’s commitment to maintaining a strong deterrent stance”.
