Combined forces from IDF and Israeli Navy elite commando units Sayeret Matkal and Shayetet 13 raid Green Island in the northern Gulf of Suez. The island had been manned by about 80 Egyptian soldiers, who had been operating a radar station and anti-aircraft guns. The military installations on the island are destroyed in the operation and dozens of Egyptian soldiers are killed. Six IDF men are killed and eight are wounded. Two First Squadron Bell-205 helicopters evacuate some of the casualties under heavy Egyptian fire.
