  1. Wait, so it’s Russia and Iran vs. Saudi Arabia and Israel? But Israel really isn’t against Russia, right?

    A Russian submarine was spotted in Israel’s territorial waters, near central Israel, three months ago, Ynet learned on Monday.

    The submarine was located by the IDF naval forces some eight nautical miles (15 kilometers), while Israeli territorial waters stretch to 12 nautical miles (22 kilometers) off the shore.

    Once it became clear the submarine was Russian, the Naval officers contacted their Russian counterparts, activating the Naval Coordination Mechanism between the two countries through the Planning Directorate (a directorate in the IDF General Staff).

    This prompted the submarine to leave the area and head toward the western Mediterranean.

    The Israeli military did not elaborate on whether any damage has been done to the security of the state or for how long the submarine stayed in Israel’s territorial waters.

    “From time to time the IDF naval forces discover targets within our territorial borders, which may be perceived as being vessels belonging to foreign military,” said the army in a statement. “We do not intend to comment on the details of the article.”

    The presence of Russian submarines in Israel’s territorial waters could be part of Moscow’s recent attempts to entrench itself in the Middle East after it has established its military presence in Syria. The maneuver could also have long-term implications on Israeli security if it was to be revealed that the submarine had intelligence-gathering capabilities.

  6. Russia and China expanding influence while the Trump\GOP foreign policy shrinks American influence and turns their back on allies!. Shameful time in america across the board!

  7. US Navy 6th Fleet is probably all over that sub, tracking it and gathering data.

  8. “это не то место, где я припарковал свою машину”

  9. Given that Israel violates Lebanese airspace and waters all the time… send assassins to foreign countries to kill people they don’t like…

    I guess a little taste of their own medicine isn’t kosher?

  10. World war 3 is going to be super exciting!!!

  11. Israel should now what to do. I can’t wait for RUSS Libertsky

  12. When it’s said out loud, it has a , *”MOM tell him to GET OUT OF MY ROOM!”,* vibe.

  13. Don’t worry.

    The submarine is just there on their regular trip to collect US military hardware secrets from Israel. Nothing note worthy cause Israel known to leak that stuff anyway.

  14. Tell the Israelis that it’s an American ship so they’ll sink it.

  15. They supported republicans. You got the embassy moved to Jerusalem. Now Russia gets your territorial waters.

    You get what you pay for.

  16. It is just a water settlement. Calm down Israel.
