Israel seizes Iranian ship full of weapons...

All bound for Hezbollah in Lebanon...
Special Navy forces discovered weapons and ammunition on a cargo ship overnight Tuesday, after boarding the Francop some 100 nautical miles west of Israel flying an Antiguan flag.

Defense officials said the 140-meter long Francop, captured near Cyprus, was carrying arms sent by Iran and destined for Syria and Hizbullah.

More than 60 tons of weaponry were on board, in dozens of containers. The Francop carried hundreds of containers.

A significant amount of 122 mm. Katyusha rockets, likely made in Iran, assault rifles, mortar shells and grenades were found on board.

Israel Radio reported that advanced anti-aircraft platforms not before found in the region were also on board.

Military intelligence had been following the ship's progress for several days. The vessel is German, and its captain of Polish nationality.

The timing of this is suspect considering Iran is in negotiations with the IAEA.

No, Israel is not the policeman of the world, but thank God that SOME country's intelligence is watching out for us. The next shipment from Iran might very well be destined for our own shores.

Iran is supplying arms to terrorist groups that are killing women and children , of course Israel has to do anything and everything in its power to stop such shipments. 400 containers full of weaponsin the hands of Hezbollah is an all out war

Iran arm Palestine, America arm Israel. Maybe if Palestinans were armed with nukes and armed to the teeth by the largest military in the World, Israel might not be so keen to treat them so inhumanely and keep 'killing the palestinian women and children' as the above comment said.
