Lebanese Vessel Captured in Israeli Waters; Will Be Sold by Israel

Download PDF for this date

A small Lebanese fishing smack with a crew of three was captured in Israeli waters off the northern border of the country in the vicinity of Aziv.

The vessel and its cargo will be sold and the proceeds deposited pending a court’s decision as to its final disposition. The fishermen, when captured, asserted that they could find no food fish in Lebanese waters so they continued south until they encountered fish.
