Israeli Navy Captures Arms Ship Headed From Iran to Syria - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News - FOXNews.com
This story is from the associated press. Below is a quote from the above story.

Israeli naval commandos seized an arms ship near Cyprus early Wednesday and towed it to an Israeli port, defense officials said a rare interception that highlighted Israel's fears that Iran is arming its enemies.
Military officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press that the boat originated in Iran and its cargo was headed for Iranian-backed Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon who have warred with Israel.
The defense officials said the arms cache included various missiles, including anti-tank missiles. The ship, whose weapons were being unloaded at the southern Israeli port of Ashdod, was disguised as an aid boat and was flying an Antiguan flag, they added.
