Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is visiting the U.S. this week, said he approved the ship seizure after consultations with his security chiefs.

“At the same time that it is talking to world powers, at the same time that Iran is smiling and saying all kinds of honeyed words, that same Iran is sending lethal weaponry to terrorist organizations and it is doing so in a complex web of covert, worldwide operations,” Netanyahu said from Los Angeles.

The Palestinian Islamists denies any involvement and accused Israel of concocting a story to “justify the blockade” of the coastal territory.

“Iran has been exposed for what it is. It smiles in the Geneva talks about its own nuclear ambitions, gives soothing words, and as they’re doing that, they’re shipping these deadly weapons to the world’s worst terrorists,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in California during a U.S. visit. “Such a regime must not be able to have the capacity to make nuclear weapons.”

According to the BBC, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) had been tracking the weapons for several months, first flown from Damascus to Tehran and then taken to a port in southern Iran.

The ship was eventually intercepted while on its way to Sudan.
