>Always reliant: The Mermaid

>According to Jerusalem Post, Israeli and Turkish Navies will participate in a search-and-rescue exercise in the Mediterranean Sea in July.

This annual exercise, code named Reliant Mermaid, is organised since 1998. The objective of the exercise is to practice coordinated emergency SAR procedures and familiarize the participants with each other’s capabilities. Usually US Navy always participates in these exercise as well.

Some people were afraid that this years exercise might be cancelled because of the recently strained relations between the two countries of the Operation Cast Lead.

Politicians may exchange harsh words in heated debates but for the sailors it is business as usual.
