American Navy Seals and Israeli Navy Commandos (Shayetet 13) are pretty famous for being fierce, daring fighters who serve honorably on the sea. But can they repair a vessel under pressure or save the life of a drowning sailor?
The Israeli Yaltam unit (Underwater Mission Unit), closely related to Shayetet 13, is the special unit used by the navy whenever experienced divers are called for.
YALTAM divers are present aboard any on-duty navy vessel, ready to provide aid during an emergency. For example, should the ship need repairs at sea or should a sailor fall overboard.
