Further and better particulars? Are signals being jammed, or spoofed?

Several aircraft reported having lost the GPS signal between Marseille and St Tropez.
We had this problem and our GNSS displayed zero satelitte.
The situation returned to normal leaving the area.

Well, in fact, the jamming came from a big private yacht with very powerfull jamming device on board.
Investigation is in progress.
The jamming occured the 3rd of November.
VOLFA 2019 started the 4th of november.
