One form of Israeli response - the anti-terror unmanned surface vehicle Death Shark.
But the true mission of the "death shark" is to defend Israel waters, her civilian coastline and her allies from a terrorist attack.
The IDF said that it plans to deploy it for dangerous tasks, such as monitoring the coast for suspected infiltrators. Palestinian terrorists have detonated themselves a number of times next to Navy patrol boats, and the Navy has long sought a safer way to approach suspicious sea craft at sea.
