Israel claims capture of anti-tank and rocket arms shipment from Iran

Israel Navy claims it has captured an arms shipment from Iran destined for Hezbollah. Israel says it seized anti-tank weapons and Katyusha rockets. Let's hope more shipments are getting through than are being intercepted by the settler state.
JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israeli naval commandos seized an arms ship Wednesday near Cyprus that was carrying missiles and anti-tank weapons from Iran to Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon, defense officials said.

The pre-dawn seizure highlighted Israel's accusations that Iran is arming its enemies. Israel offered no evidence to back up its claim that the weapons were meant for Hezbollah.

The arms cache, including anti-tank missiles and Katyusha rockets, was stashed aboard a commercial vessel operating under the guise of an aid boat, captained by a Pole and flying an Antiguan flag, Israeli defense officials said.
