Our big neighbor on the south, Egypt, holds elite anti terrorism unit that was established in the late 70s and has about 200 fighters.
In the early years the unit's work probably not you like to be a hostage of rescue by fighters "Task Force 777" scored at the outset than failure from success:
In Cyprus 1978 landed a hijacked airliner captured by "Terrorist front organization". The unit's task force went there to free the hostages.
The problem Egyptian authorities have forgotten to update the Cypriots this missin and Cyprus thought that this force would terrorists. The result: in 80 minutes 15 of 79 Egyptian warriors were killed .
Cypriots, by the way, have not lost this battle even one fighter.
One Egyptian military Jeep was captured
In 1992, the Cypriot army issued this jeep for sale.
Viking Divers won the tender and has been used for many years to drag the boats from the sea.
