Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday said that Israel had reasonable grounds to believe that dozens of tons of weaponry on board the Victoria freighter ship which was seized by Navy commandos "was intended to harm Israeli citizens." Netanyahu said the weapons originally came from Iran.

"The seizure was made at sea according to international laws. We updated all the relevant countries and the international community," Netanyahu said.
