Israel 'captures weapons shipment from Iran'

Israel says it has seized a ship carrying advanced Iranian weapons made in Syria that was heading towards Gaza.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has released pictures of weapons, which they say were onboard a Panamanian-flagged vessel boarded by Israeli naval commandos in the Red Sea off the coast of Sudan.

Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu called the shipment a "clandestine operation" by Iran.
