Hundreds of missiles, weapons and munitions likely headed from Iran to Houthi militants in Yemen are in US hands, intercepted during an operation earlier this week in the Arabian Sea.
The shipment of weapons seized over the weekend would violate a UN Security Council resolution prohibiting the "direct or indirect supply, sale, or transfer of weapons to the Houthis", the statement said. "They're all very consistent with what we know about weapons that have been made in Iran". Crew members from the USS Normandy seized the weapons after swooping on a small dhow while carrying out maritime security operations.
"Those weapons were determined to be of Iranian origin and assessed to be destined for the Houthis in Yemen", the US Central Command said.
Officials told VOA they could find no evidence linking the crew of the intercepted ship to militant groups.
An "inter-agency and global effort" is underway to assess the weapons, Fox News reported, with USA partner nations and worldwide organizations invited to inspect the cache.
