Report: Damaged Israeli warship returns to port
Jerusalem Post.com – July 15, 2006
The Israeli warship struck by a Hizbullah-fired missile, killing two aboard and leaving two others missing, returned to its home port in Haifa on Saturday, according to TV footage.
The army would not confirm if the ship was arriving, but the Saar 5-class missile ship, named the "Spear," could clearly be seen on television sailing into port.
The ship was severely damaged Friday night after it was struck by an Iranian-made, radar-guided C-102 missile.
