Jean-François Colas was lost at sea for 30 days…until the IDF came to the rescue!
During the predawn hours of Friday morning, January 18, 2019, in an Israel Navy control facility, a vessel was seen being dragged with the current towards Gaza.
After a preliminary investigation, it was discovered that a French citizen had been in the sea for several weeks due to a ship failure during a storm. The IDF rescued the civilian and evacuated him for medical assistance.
“After the ship was identified, the fighters acted swiftly to rescue and bring the citizen to safety while providing first aid on board our ship. We will continue to carry out our mission throughout the year and in all weather conditions,” the Navy said in a statement.
