Everyone remembers that a few months ago the North Koreans torpedoed and sank a South Korean frigate, killing a lot of sailors. It's pretty easy for a sub to torpedo a ship that doesn't think there's a war. They got away with it, despite the South finding, recovering, and displaying the remains of the torpedo - clearly of NORK origin.
Fast forward to now. Two Iranian warships are going through the Suez Canal on the way to the Mediterranean. I imagine their crews are about as professional as one might expect. The Israelis are taking this very seriously, calling it a serious provocation. At the very least, they probably assume the Iranians are carrying weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Israel has submarines, very good ones with highly professional crews. Just sayin'.
