Israel has denied on Friday that the arms ship seized by Egypt on Wednesday night left from the Eilat port, or had any connection to Israel, Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told AFP.

"Nobody in Israel knows anything about this ship. It's clear that it did not come from Eilat or any other Israeli port," Palmor said.

Egyptian officials said on Thursday that the ship intercepted by the Egyptian navy and carried 45 tons of weapons, had set off from the Eilat port in the Red Sea and was heading to Togo in West Africa.
