    Default US Warship Seizes Suspected Iran Missile Parts Set for Yemen

    04 December 2019


    U.S. officials say a Navy warship has seized a “significant cache” of suspected Iranian guided missile parts headed to rebels in Yemen.

    The officials say this is the first time that such sophisticated missile components have been seized en route to the war in Yemen. The seizure from a small boat by the U.S. Navy and a U.S. Coast Guard boarding team happened last Wednesday in the northern Arabian Sea and the weapons have been linked to Iran.

    Officials say the incident illustrates the continuing illegal smuggling of weapons to Houthi rebels and comes as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Iran is the main topic. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to describe a sensitive military mission.

    The Coast Guard does not just patrol US territory.
    They are often used to back up the Navy, especially in ship boarding and inspections as that is their expertise
