(Washington Times) A ship filled with dozens of rockets allegedly supplied by Iran was raided Wednesday in the Red Sea by the Israeli navy.
Military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner told reporters that Syrian-made M-302 rockets sent from Iran were on board. Each rocket has a range of up to 100 miles.
"Iran trains, funds and arms terror groups in the region and around the world and its failed attempts to transfer the arms that were discovered this morning is more proof of that," Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said after the raid, The Associated Press reported.
