Final inventory of weapons ship posted

The big show won't be until Monday, when the government hopes to bring most of the foreign diplomats in the country to Eilat, but the IDF has already posted its final inventory of the weapons discovered on the Klos-C - the Iranian weapons ship that was intercepted off the coast of Sudan this past week.
After detailed analysis carried out by the Engineering Corps, the IDF found 40 M-302 rockets, with a range of between 90 to 160 kilometers, hidden in crates.
The Klos C also carried 180 120mm. mortar shells and some 400,000 7.62mm. bullets.
“These are advanced weapons that were intended to threaten the security of millions of Israeli civilians. The IDF will continue in its mission to prevent arms smuggling across the Middle East to various terrorist organizations, under Iranian cover and funding,” the military said in a statement.
Before being intercepted, the ship was heading for Port Sudan, where the Iranian Quds Force had planned to pick up the rockets and move them overland via Egypt and into Gaza through smuggling tunnels, the IDF determined.
Thank God the IDF was able to stop this.
