The IDF will continue offloading the Iranian shipment of weapons discovered aboard the Francop, which was seized by the Israel Navy on Tuesday night, Army Radio reported on Thursday morning. So far, all of the arms offloaded from the ship were familiar to Israel, and it is known that Hizbullah already holds this type of weaponry, the radio station quoted defense officials as saying. Military sources assessed Teheran would be forced to change its smuggling routes following the Israel Navy's successful operation.
