About The Event
IAC Dor Chadsah in collaboration with AFU669-(American Friends of Unit 669) invites you to join us for a special evening of hopes, dreams, determination and the Israeli spirit.
On September 1997 a force of the elite unit SHAYETET 13 was sent to a secret operation behind the enemy line near the town Anzeria, south Lebanon. During the operation, a group of Hezbollah fighters detected the force and began shooting and detonating IEDs. 11 navy seal soldiers were killed that night, as well as the rescue team's doctor. 4 soldiers were injured, Nir Caspi was the most critical one, and is one of the only 5 survivors of that horrid night.
