Jet Ski Unit
The Sapir Jet Ski Unit, launched three years after the ZAKA Divers Unit began operating, provides additional assistance and logistical back up in ZAKA’s maritime rescue operations.
The jet skis, which are owned and driven by private individuals who have undergone specialist training by ZAKA personnel, transport equipment to the site of the search. This greatly enhances the effectiveness and speed of a search operation in the water.
The Sapir Jet Ski Unit is the initiative of Ilan Karni, a computer engineer by profession and commander of the ZAKA Divers Unit, who named the unit after his late daughter.
