Israel’s Defense Intelligence units have been piecing together, for many months, the puzzle regarding the arms smuggling,” Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi said in a press briefing Thursday morning. His remarks referred to an IDF operation on Wednesday, which intercepted an Iranian weapons shipment on its way to terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

Maj. Gen. Kochavi emphasized that the shipment without doubt originated in Iran. “We have good, solid, incriminating evidence that Iran planned, managed and executed this arms smuggling,” he said. The Quds Force, a special unit of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, was the prime force behind the arms shipment, he noted.

The smuggling attempt was the latest in a long line of Iran’s attempts to ship weapons to terror groups in the region. “This is yet another example of the ongoing process, the ongoing effort of the Iranians to undermine the stability of the Middle East,” Maj. Gen. Kochavi said. Iran’s goal is ”to undermine regimes and to support all forms of terror organizations in Lebanon, in Syria, in Iraq, in Bahrain, in Yemen, in Libya and in the Gaza Strip, which was the destination of these rockets.”

UN Resolution 1747 forbids Iran from engaging in arms smuggling, he said. “Again and again, Iran violated the decision of the UN Security Council that prohibits it from selling and transferring weaponry.”

  1. Only Israel could do such brave things… Kudos to all team members.

  2. Ignorant? Corrupt Obama Administration!

  3. Larry H. Gentry says:

    Another great job by the IDF! But I can't help but wonder what it's going to take for Israel and the USA to really deal seriously with the murderous regime in Iran. How many have to die?

  4. He who hesitates loses. German Jews hesitated to no avail in ww2. The U.S. has grown weak and indecisive under Obama. I am grateful for tyheir financial support but Iran needs to be dealt with directly in the only manner that they will understand

  5. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    Fine intelligence job the navy did. The weapons were destined for Hamas in Gaza the terrorist group the new Egyptian government have deemed illegal because of its affiliation with The Muslim Brotherhood. How come that the Brotherhood still operates in the US openly (CAIR and a dozen others)? – Besides, how many more rockets from Gaza before it is closing time for the Strip.

  6. It is time to destroy the nuclear, weapons and political sites of Iran, the Iranians needs a change of living, Obama and Kerry are clowns.
