Armed Patrol Boats (Satilim)

Armed patrol boats (Satilim — «sfinat tilim») offer a good opportunity to perform military duty in the combat units of the “Hel aYam” (Navy). The boats, armed with missiles, are the main force on the Israeli sea border.

Alongside patrolling the territory, the soldiers are also responsible for preventing naval incursion on the country border, and naval attacks, counteracting terrorist organizations, and protecting the Israeli coast. Combatant crafts «haley yam» patrol the entire Israeli territory 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and take part in many military operations which are mainly classified.
