The unit (YALTAM in Hebrew: Yahida Le’mesimot Tat-Yamiyot) of less than 100 soldiers – both women and men – is a vital part of Israel’s regional maritime superiority. The training is a grueling year-long process where troops learn to dive up to 42 meters deep. When the pilots were finally pulled from the helicopter by YALTAM troops, they were brought to shore, where they were pronounced dead. The YALTAM unit drilled on neutralizing naval mines at Eilat Bay, as well as neutralizing explosives using unmanned vessels at the Haifa Naval Base.5 months ago The Jerusalem Post
