Not photos of hit Israeli warship - actually Australian!

The ship in the photgraph is HMAS Torrens, a River Class Destroyer Escort (based on the Leander Class Frigate) of the Royal Australian Navy.

The photos were taken on 14 June 1999 when HMAS Torrens, having been decommisioned, was used a s a target for a torpedo attack by the submarine HMAS Farncomb off the coast of Western Australia.

It was on an Arabic website and described as Israeli. I'll update the title :)
