JERUSALEM, March 5 (Xinhua) -- Israeli Navy on Tuesday seized an Iranian ship that carried advanced weapons heading for the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army said.
Israeli commandos raided the Panamanian-flagged Klos C on the maritime border of Sudan and Eritrea, some 1,500 km from Israel's shores. Reports said the ship was en route to Port Sudan.
A search of the cargo found Iran-made M302 long-range rockets and other munitions. The ship was being towed to the southern Red Sea port of Eilat.
