The new Sa’ar-6 class missile corvette INS Oz arrived in Haifa from Germany.
After a two-week voyage, the ship is anchored at the naval base.
The corvette is the second of four to join the Israeli Navy. These ships will be a major part of the defense of Israel’s territorial waters and offshore energy resources.
The process of installing weapons systems, radar and electronics on the ship is expected to be completed in the coming months. Defense Minister Beni Gantz and Navy Commander Eli Sharvit met the corvette, which arrived in Israel.
