JERUSALEM (AFP) -- The Israeli military said on Sunday it had found 40 rockets with a range of 160 kilometers aboard a ship allegedly transporting arms from Iran to the Gaza Strip.

The army said it seized the Panamanian-flagged Klos-C on Wednesday and escorted it to the Red Sea port of Eilat where it was inspected on Sunday and unloaded in an operation dubbed "Full Disclosure".

"Weaponry Found Onboard Klos-C: 40 rockets (type M-302), up to the range of 160 kilometers, 181 122mm mortar shells, approximately 400,000 7.62-calibre rounds," were found, a statement said.

Note that having seized the ship in international waters, the Israelis would have to insist it was bound for Gaza. Otherwise, they would have inarguably committed an act of piracy. Actually, the action may have been designed to bait Iran -- whatever was actually on the ship is unknowable, but it does seem likely it was an Iranian export.

1., Colin, they were really headed for a coffee klatch in Haifa. Or maybe a fireworks show in Cyprus. Both highly unlikely, but those stories probably make sense in your illogical world. 2. Mel, you may want to comment on the actual story.

Mel, still can't figure out why you are living in Amerika if you hate your government and country so much Why not move to Gaza where you can get your meds AND work to make Gaza a beautiful paradise on earth where Americans will want to move to escape the z.o.g. in DC. African migrants fleeing oppression will flock to Gaza too, as will Europeans fleeing EU domination of their lives. Come on Mel....move to Gaza now!

“1 Million Arabs Not Worth A Jewish Fingernail” Those were the words of extremist Rabbi Yaacov Perrin, who murdered praying Palestinians back in 1994. They believe that the world is fine with thousands of Arabs being displaced and butchered in cold blood, but let someone harm one Israeli, and the world will go crazy. Israel has done the following: seized members of a democratically elected government; bombed its interior ministry, the prime minister’s offices, and a school; threatened another s
