The ship "Victoria" came from the Syrian port of Latakia (according to other sources - from Beirut), has gone to the Turkish port of Mersin, and then headed to Alexandria. The Israeli authorities reported that the weapons sent to the Iranian regime for Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
"The source of all these weapons is Iran. The ship was on its way to Gaza through Syria. The ultimate goal of these deadly weapons were to be peaceful citizens of Israel. This axis of terror - Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas, with which we are fighting, and eventually we reverse this axis. This weapon is a further proof of the need for the blockade of the Gaza Strip, in order to ensure the security of Israeli citizens, "- said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
