False report - claimed by "Hawk" SAM

   Israel have confirmed only damage of one F-15D in air-to-air combat 9-jun-82, pilot Shapiro managed to land on air base in Ramat-David. Most likely, this victory has gained the 25 years old MiG-21bis pilot Capt. Nafiya Sel'mu from a squadron of Lt.Col. Moris Georgeus. Result on HUD-camera.
