Exclusive: Inside the Israeli Navy’s Elite Underwater Unit’s Operations in Gazan Waters

The IDF’s YALTAM unit found numerous weapons and combat equipment in the Gaza Strip’s shores. The recovered items include explosive belts, improvised explosive devices, and ammunition, likely used by Hamas terrorists who attempted to infiltrate southern Israel. The unit also safely detonated a rocket-propelled grenade warhead on a Gazan beach. The maritime infiltration resulted in gunfights on Israeli beaches, resulting in the deaths of 10 Hamas terrorists. The IDF worked to defuse any devices containing explosive material.
