About three months ago, an Israeli missile boat spotted a Russian submarine 15 kilometers (8 nautical miles) off the Tel Aviv coast, reports Yedioth Ahronoth publication without reference to the source of information.
The submarine violated the border as the 22-kilometer coastal strip is considered Israeli territorial water. The Israeli General Staff, using the communication line between the Navies, asked the Russian military for clarification.
A short time after this request, the Russian submarine left Israel’s maritime zone in the western direction.
The official Israeli army authorities did not comment on this information.
