Following Israel's seizure of a ship loaded with Iranian weapons allegedly bound for Syria and Hizbullah, the US stressed that it remained "extremely concerned about Hizbullah's efforts to rearm in direct violation of various United Nations Security Council resolutions." A State Department official emphasized that "Hizbullah continues to pose a significant threat to peace and security in Lebanon and the region," though he acknowledged that it was "unclear" what types of weapons had been found.
