The port of Haifa, known as Israel’s gateway to the sea, is not only home to cargo and commercial vessels. This hub connecting Israel to the Mediterranean Sea is also home to a vast array of Israel Navy Ships, dedicated to guarding Israel’s shores.

These Navy ships are extremely important and couldn’t operate smoothly if they weren’t properly cared for.
