    German ship carrying Iranian Weaponry

    Six advanced Iranian-made anti-ship missiles, two radar systems and close to 50 tons of assorted weaponry were put on display on Wednesday after being discovered inside three containers aboard the German-owned Victoria cargo ship. The Victoria was seized by Israeli naval commandos early Tuesday morning as it sailed from Turkey to Egypt, about 320 kilometers from Israel's coast. On Wednesday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and IDF Chief Staff, Benny Gantz visited the Ashdod Port and inspected the arms cache. Netanyahu expressed that this was the reason for stopping Gazabound ships and those who questioned and attacked and criticized Israel now have an answer. Netanyahu said that Iran's attempt to smuggle arms to Hamas in the Gaza Strip was a demonstration of the "axis of terror"
