Israel: January 4, 2002


The ship seized by Israeli commandos in the Red Sea is causing embarrassment for the Palestinians. The boat was 500 kilometers sough to Eliat when it was taken. Members of the Palestinian naval police were found to be in charge of the ship's crew.  The commandos overcame the 13 man crew without a shot being fired. The weapons included an Iranian made rocket with a range of 20 kilometers, that would have allowed Palestinians to hit targets just about anywhere in Israel.
