Egyptian authorities released on Saturday morning an Israeli ship that they had detained on Thursday as it made its way through international waters in the Red Sea, Israel Radio reported.

The ship, on its way to Eilat, was carrying weapons and ammunition that it received from the Ofer Sfanot company and that were meant to be used for protection from Somali pirates.

The ship along with its four crew members were released following the intervention of the Foreign Ministry in the matter.
