US showed seizure of Iranian ship allegedly with a load of weapons


The Ticonderoga-class USS Normandy (CG-60) missile cruiser intercepted a coaster (dhow type) in the Arabian Sea over the weekend, carrying a stash with weapons Arsenal of Iranian production.


As indicated, "in accordance with international law", an American warship conducted an operation to ensure maritime security, as reported by the US Central Command.

Allegedly on board were: 150 Dehlavieh anti-tank missiles, “which are the Iranian version of the Russian Cornets,” three land-to-air missiles launched by Tehran, thermal imagers, components for manned and unmanned aerial and sea-based means.

It is stated that many of the munitions seized are similar to those found last November under similar circumstances with the USS Forrest Sherman destroyer (DDG-98). Then it was noted that the cargo was destined for the Yemenite Hussites. A similar conclusion was made in this case.

According to the US military, Tehran did not have the right to do this, since a UN Security Council resolution prohibits "the direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer of weapons to the Hussites."

However, the presented video can hardly be called evidence of the transportation of illegal goods. It only recorded a collision of two boats, on one of which was a group of people, presumably military. It is possible that after that the phones “sat down” right away.

    And why the Iranians do not carry on their military vehicles? Accompanied by.
    Here we have - there are vessels chartered by the military, and there are vessels of the WASH (auxiliary harbor vessels), which, like with a "civilian" crew, but under a specific flag.
    All sorts of suppliers, scouts, transports.
    Relatively speaking, the Liberian steamboat deformed the MoD, loaded with weapons and taken to Syria, and his enemies slowed down and arrested him.
    But if this is a ship under the flag of the WASH, then try to detain him, he can shoot.

      It looks like some kind of production. It is too risky to carry weapons at such a distance as from Iran to the Hussite zone in Yemen. And because of the control by the "anti-pirates" forces, and the presence of these same Somali pirates, and the possible bad weather that could sink ... what

        Sounds like some kind of posing

        And note - the boat does not belong to Iran, because if they said that they had captured the Iranian boat, Iran has denied this. An anonymous boat turned out.
        The fleet needs regular victories. And if there are no victories, they must be invented.

      On February 26, 2018, Russia blocked an anti-Iranian resolution on Yemen.
      "We barely fought back then."
      That is why they cannot use WASH.
      In the old fashion, they do everything, "on longboats."
      It touched that the team tried to raise the sail seconds before the assault.

      Iranians are forced to "act on the sly." Well, sometimes come across, like this time.

    For some reason, Americans always have problems with evidence. But they do not really bother with this. It is said luminevo, it means luminevo. Remember the fuzzy video in which the Iranian military allegedly put magnetic mines on tankers. There were many questions, but Iran’s accusations remained.

      video from the registrar or what? it looks ridiculous ... the crew of the pelvis in a heap with raised hands ... some sort of shmurden from the Americans is another, apparently after the shelling of the base, the nickname woke up the urge to "exploits".

      Only for a certain category of citizens who declare anything to be fake and photoshop, and do not worry at all about the reasons for doing this - they only need a feeling of deep inner conviction.

    This video looks like some kind of fake. There, in my opinion, the pirates were intercepted, and the ship looks like a big scow, where are there so many weapons to hide?

      Most likely it happens at night and was shot through a night vision device, and therefore the picture is like that.

      The pedestal .. so, by the way .. and secondly, the crew of Peter the Great also had to issue orders at the time .. And the commander of the title of super admiral .. By your logic .. Or you already forgot how heroically our nuclear cruiser chasing Somali pirates on junks? And what stories came out on TV about the exploit of our sailors? This thankless task, of course, is to chase the troughs on cruisers .. Regardless of the country under whose flag the warship goes .. not a horse’s feed ..)

    it’s pointless to explain to them here, this site is not for smart people, just understand, this is how to argue with Solovyov’s channel, you’ll just be hushed up and that's it, the truth is not needed here, a special “truth” is needed here

      That's right, go away! Moreover, a simple review of your comments suggests one thing - Uncle Sam’s ears grow even in the opposite place from his head!

      But Iran is still afraid of the USA .. After the assassination of the general, even the “world media” forgot about the downed Boeing (framed) .. As if on command!

    Just on such a scandal and the easiest to smuggle. There are a lot of them. You can slip through. And the distance is about 1,5 thousand kilometers.

    The displacement of the vessel is from 300 to 500 tons. It’s not so small ... Moreover, ATGMs in containers will not take up much space
