Israelske kommandosoldater bordet et skip utenfor Kypros onsdag morgen og fant 300 tonn våpen, sendt fra Iran til Hizbollah. Syria sto som mottaker. Det bekrefter triangelet til stor forlegenhet for Syria. Man kan si de alle tre er tatt med buksene nede.

Israel Navy Chief Brig. Gen. Rani Ben-Yehuda said Wednesday that an arms ship seized near Cyprus earlier in the day had been carrying hundreds of tons of weapons.

Israeli commandos seized the ship before dawn on Wednesday and defense officials said it had been carrying missiles and rockets bound for Lebanon’s Iranian-backed Hezbollah guerrillas, believed to have come from Iran.

At a press conference Wednesday, Ben-Yehuda said that the ship had been carrying 40 containers filled with 300 tons of weapons each, all meant for Hezbollah in order to pose a threat to Israel.

I 1992 beslagla Israel 30 tonn våpen på «Karine A». De skulle til Yasser Arafats styrker i Gaza. Arafat blånektet og norske medier fortiet saken, da den avslørte at Arafat forberedte krig.
