The submarine "Dakar" in 1968 could have sunk due to a collision with an underwater UFO

The technological progress of mankind over the past centuries has given people airplanes, steamships, trains, helicopters, submarines, spaceships and much more. Along with this diversity, our civilization has known grandiose catastrophes. The same "Titanic", various accidents on railway tracks, plane crashes. But, not in all cases there was a catastrophe. Some incidents remained without a logical explanation. Such a case can be considered the sinking of the submarine "Dakar".

In 1968, a submarine purchased by Israel from England set sail from the British city of Portsmouth. This route was chosen as the safest. Almost three weeks later, the Dakar was due to arrive in the Israeli city of Haifa. But that didn't happen. On January 9, 1968, the submarine was last seen. Communication with the crew was maintained until January 24. After crossing the island of Crete, the captain of the submarine, Yakov Ranaan, announced that the Dakar would arrive in Haifa almost a day ahead of schedule.

These words turned out to be the last phrase received from the submarine. After 6 hours, no one contacted the center. To avoid panic among the population, the country's leadership reported interruptions in connection with the crew and referred to bad weather conditions in Israel when the sandstorm began.

Two days later, the Prime Minister of the country admitted that communication with the submariners had been lost. For five years, the search for the sunken submarine did not bring any results. Only 31 years later, in 1999, American underwater vehicles, combing the bottom of the water area between Cyprus and Crete, noticed a strange object. It turned out to be the Dakar submarine.

Further investigation showed that there was no damage on her from the alleged explosion of a mine or torpedo. The boat was in almost pristine condition. Attempts by the Americans to lay the blame for the death of the submarine on the USSR were unsuccessful.

UFO sightings

I wish we had something to believe in or hope for, something to hide. We don't know anything that you don't know. We are not hiding anything. We don't know anything, except that at some point the contact was interrupted, and we haven't heard anything since. If we knew definitively, if we had actual evidence that the crew members or some of them drowned or died, we would have come to the parents and families and told them about it

Acting Defense Minister Moshe Dayan said at the time:

UFO sightings

Investigators have not found a single body of a crew member. Where could people have gone? The mystery of the death of the submarine "Dakar" is one of the unsolved to this day. Independent researchers found the records in the UK archive report. It said that the fishing trawler of England recorded a 22-meter round glowing object in the area of the future disaster of the submarine "Dakar".

The object then floated to the surface, then went to the depth and became distinguishable only on radar. Based on this, the version about the impact of underwater UFO radiation on the equipment of the submarine and the subsequent shutdown of the equipment may well be true.
