Israel Defense Force (IDF) seized a freighter ship, known as Victoria, in the Mediterranean Sea, 200 miles off of Israel's coast. IDF reported that the ship was carrying dozens of tons of weaponry from Iran headed for Hamas in the Gaza strip.
The Victoria was boarded by commandos from the Israeli Navy's Shayetet unit, and is expected to arrive in the Ashdod port later today. The ship set sails last night from Turkey, and was expected to dock in Alexandria, Egypt. IDF said that the weapons did not originate in Turkey, but that the containers were unloaded there and transferred onto the Victoria.
