Hi Richie,

Following is a fair description of the events and actions
taken:

>> According to the the Israeli Navy, the ship's sophisticated automatic missile defense system was not deployed, even though the early warning system is usually deployed during peace-time wargames. It was also reported that even a nearby ship had deployed its defense system, thus creating great speculations. [4]. Israel said the defense system was not deployed because of Israeli aircraft in the area. There was no known intelligence pointing to the fact that such a sophisticated missile was deployed in Lebanon by Hezbollah.

As a result of the incident, two navy officers, two junior officers and the commander of the ship have been formally reprimanded and repositioned to non-commanding positions on land. One of the junior officers had shut down the central radar and parts of the defence system without notifying the commander, in the belief that the ship was not under threat.[5]>>
