As part of his visit, the President met with and held an open conversation with the fighters and commanders of the unit. "I was impressed by an elite and powerful unit, and even more than that – united," President Herzog told them. "To hear about the covert naval operations, pushing all boundaries, about its fighters, commanders, and reservists, arouses excitement and a sense of security and strength."

"In days when Israeli society faces numerous challenges, to see the spark in the eyes, in the determined faces of the courageous fighters I met today, compels us to keep the IDF united and to continue enabling them to engage in the security of the State of Israel," Herzog added.
