Now the US authorities are establishing from where and where the ship was heading.

According to the official Twitter account of the US 5th Fleet, the arrest was carried out in neutral waters by the team of the missile cruiser Monterrey. The operation lasted more than two days.

The US military notes that thousands of Russian and Chinese-made machine guns, as well as Russian anti-tank missile systems, sniper rifles and machine guns, were found on board the vessel.

The found weapon was confiscated.

The crew of the vessel carrying the illegal cargo was released after interrogation. Now the US authorities are establishing from where and where the weapons were transported.

According to the US military, the shipment of weapons was destined for Yemeni Houthi rebels, the Associated Press reported.

Presumably, the ship was sailing from Iran.

This is not the first time that an American ship has been detained with a large cargo of weapons in the Arabian Sea. In particular, in early 2020, the US military detained an Iranian ship with weapons.
