Ships owned by the Ofer family that docked in Iran may have carried Israel Air Force Blackhawk helicopters, which were used by commando units, the Sunday Times reported.

The paper claimed in the Sunday report that the helicopters were concealed in special containers for infiltration into Iran.

The UK newspaper reported that the commando teams may have conducted reconnaissance missions against Iran’s secret nuclear sites, enabling the Israelis to reach Iran without arousing suspicion.
