[Ed. – The mullahs apparently aren’t feeling enough of a pinch. The good news: we’re interdicting the weapons flow instead of leaving it wide open for five years as Trump’s predecessor did.]
Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy (CG-60) seized a cache of Iranian-made anti-tank missiles and other munitions aboard a dhow in the Arabian Sea over the weekend.
Normandy stopped the dhow while conducting maritime security operations over the weekend, in accordance with international law, according to a statement released Thursday by U.S. Central Command.
The seized weapons include:
150 Dehlavieh anti-tank missiles, which are Iranian-made version of the Russian Kornet anti-tank missiles
Three Iranian-made surface-to-air missiles
Thermal imaging weapon scopes
Components for manned and unmanned aerial and surface vessels
