Divers Explore Wreck of Israeli Fishing Ship

The 60-year-old fishing trawler has come to its resting place at the bottom of the sea

A 60-year-old fishing ship, the Gal Oz, was sunk off the coast of Herzliya this week in order to reduce the activities of trawlers.

The wreck of the sunk trawler will now become a destination for divers.
