[Shadwan Island, Red Sea]: [SIDE A][HIS][CSL]: Operation Rhodes was the Israeli assault on Shadwan Island on January 22, 1970, one of the many actions during the War of Attrition between Egypt and Israel. The War of Attrition was an attempt by Egypt to weaken Israel's hold on the Sinai that Israel had captured during the 1967 Six Day War. The assault on Shadwan Island had the aim of capturing Egyptian POW's and to sabotage a radar post that was deemed a threat to Israeli shipping traffic in the Red Sea. Elements of the 202 Parachute Brigade and Shayetet 13 were tasked with the mission and landed by helicopter a mile behind the Egyptian position after an air attack by A-4 Skyhawks. [ALL][NONE][1.00]
