The United States Navy boarded a sailing vessel in the Arabian Sea and seized weapons believed to be linked to Iran, including 150 ‘Dehlavieh’ anti-tank guided missiles and three surface-to-air missiles. According to the military, the weapons are identical to those seized by another U.S. warship in November 2019. A UN resolution bans Iran from exporting weapons.
