Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Looks like 350,000 Palestinian prisoners escaped from an Israeli concentration camp by breaching the Rafah wall. :thumright:

    The Rafah crossing was opened on 25 November 2005 and operated nearly daily until 25 June 2006. Since that time it has been closed by Israeli authorities on 86% of days due to security reasons. It was not opened for the export of goods. It had been closed completely in 2007

    Just been watching it on the news, not so much of a "break out" more a shopping trip! The wall was breached with explosives and then thousands of people popped off to the shops in Egypt to buy some fags, petrol, food, a motorbike and no doubt some bullets and grenades.... well if customs can't be bothered what woulkd you expect. Apparently the Egyptian border patrols were so overwhelmed they just watched from afar and Egypt will not be forcing anyone to return BBC LINK
  3. Tel Aviv has just announced that it expects Egypt to deal with the break-out "swiftly and decisively". Ominous words after the USA followed Israel's instructions to use the US Security Council veto to prevent the United Nations condemning Israeli actions in the occupied territories.

  4. Egypt have asked them for their shopping trolleys back that they borrowed.
