    Default Arrest of two Tanzim terrorists

    The IDF Spokesperson’s office on Thursday released video footage taken last month of two terrorists captured by Israeli soldiers as they prepared to fire at passing Israeli vehicles.

    The video was recorded on February 15 by two female soldiers who spotted the terrorists from a military observation post near Beit Fajjar, a Palestinian town next to Gush Etzion, approximately 23 kilometers (14 miles) south of Jerusalem.

    I'd like to know the history behind some of those cars, notably the Caddie and Lincoln.

    I guess ין is cut off.
    So INS that is really Oniyat Cheyl HaYam. Why did they not use ספינה for the noun?

    It has to do with the size of the ship. There's also a סירה which is even smaller than ספינה.

    Oh, can you rank the 3 then, I was thinking that sphinah was the largest size. But all the vessels are called oniyat in the prefix right?

    edit: There seems to be the 'Locust Boat' too: (arbah?)

    Originally there was no differnce between אונייה and ספינה, but in modern times the word אנייה is being used to describe bigger ships and ספינה smaller ones. The Israeli transportation ministry defines אונייה as a ship longer then 24 meters and ספינה as a ship between 7 to 24. The Navy uses the acronym אח"י for everything (just like USS, HMS, etc.).

    ארבה is only a barge, and of course there are other words as צוללת for a submarine, דוברה which is also a barge, סירה - a small boat, דוגית - small boat used for fishing, גוררת - tugboat, נחתת - landing ship, מעבורת - ferry, and maybe some others that I forgot.
