Defense Minister Ehud Barak commended IDF Chief of General Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi and Navy Commander Vice-Admiral Eliezer Marom on Wednesday, after special Navy forces discovered Iranian weapons and ammunition on a cargo ship. "This is another success in the incessant battle against the smuggling of arms and the military buildup by terrorist organizations who threaten Israel's security," he said. The Navy forces boarded a cargo ship some 100 nautical miles west of Israel flying an Antiguan flag overnight Tuesday. Barak said that there would be other such smuggling attempts in the future, and that Israel would have to "make every effort to thwart them."
