The ship's cargo included: 230 mortar shells 120 mm, 2,270 mortar shells, 60 mm, 6 C-704 anti-ship missiles, 2 radar systems manufactured in England, 2 launchers, 2 hydraulic mounting cranes for the radar system and 66,960 bullets for Kalashnikov rifles.
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.
