A Raid on the Red Sea is a thrilling, real-life tale of illegal gun-running in the Middle East. Recounting the most successful Israeli intelligence operation since the legendary Entebbe hostage rescue, Gen. Amos Gilboa gives the harrowing details for the first time of the secret, close working relations between Israeli and American intelligence in the seizure of the Karine A ship. At 0400 hours, Thursday, January 3, two fast boats of Israel's naval commando unit close in on the stern of the Palestinian Authority's Karine A and board the ship. The Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Corps clandestinely loaded its cargo: fifty-six tons of high-grade, long-range weapons destined for the Gaza Strip. The Israelis' plan to seize it goes awry when they find nothing but a confused group of Egyptians, Jordanians, and Palestinians. Have they boarded the wrong ship? Is there going to be an international incident disgracing Israel? The incident was the first time that Iran tried to alter the balance of power in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by providing the Palestinian Authority with rockets far more destructive than the ones they already possessed--an escalation of the Middle East conflict that is still continuing today.
