that 6 months ago IDF naval forces stopped, boarded vessel they suspected was smuggling arms.
The IDF has cleared for publication Tuesday that an Israeli navy force, active in securing Israel’s waters, captured a foreign vessel at sea in December and took its crew in for questioning.
On the basis of intelligence information, Israeli navy cruisers stopped a ship in Israeli water last December, possibly in connection to arms smuggling.
After stopping the vessel, the IDF arrested its crew members and took them in for questioning.
The crew was of Yemenite nationality and was questioned in Israel in connection to arms smuggling, but was then released.
Apparently, no arms were found on the ship itself.
In the past, such operations have led to the capture of large amounts of arms.
