The Israeli navy has come a far way from just being a crew of sailors. A new IDF action-paced video shows Navy commandos manning missiles and equipment – as well as boats.
 

“The Israel Navy is the military force of the IDF deployed at sea, responsible for sending alerts before several scenarios, responsible for the naval arena and taking care that the maritime merchant routes are able to proceed undisturbed, as part of routine security measures,” according to the IDF.

“Each of the different units of the Navy has unique capabilities for its own distinct missions. The naval combat fighter is expected to fight the enemy while he operates the most advanced machinery," the IDF added.
