The IDF Spokesperson says that C-704 missiles have a range of 35 km, which would increase Hamas' weapons capabilities in Gaza.

In addition, the documentation for the missiles was in Persian and displayed emblems of the Iranian government, and the ship originated from the Syrian port of Lattakia.

"This incident further demonstrates Iranian and Syrian involvement in strengthening and arming terror organizations in the Gaza Strip and elsewhere," the IDF spokesperson said.
