  • Description

    Despite the recent land battles on the Cairo-Suez road and on the east bank of the suez canal, the israeli navy continues its patrol and surveillance operations in the gulf of suez, ever on the alert, but relatively unmolested.

    NBC's Lou Davis went out with the small Israeli fleet of fast gunboats patrolling the gulf. Guns at the ready, these 35 small vessels run up and down the gulf. They are outnumbered by syrian and egyptian vessels, but there has been no sea battle. The Israeli boats' mission is to protect the vital export-import port of Elath, at the head of the gulf. So far no israeli boats have been lost, but they continue to cruise around the clock.
