Interesting documentary on Yom Kippur war
Jazeera media organization released an excellent documentary on the 1973 Yom Kippur
War. In the first episode at about 27:38, a Palestinian who took part in
the conflict says something very interesting. On the first day of the war the
Syrians captured an Israeli
station on Mount Hermon. Once the facility was secured Soviet and East
German personnel came and removed the equipment.
What kind of
equipment could it be? Since it was a major Israeli signal intelligence outpost
they were possibly cipher machines and specialized sigint equipment…
