The Israeli military said on Sunday it had found 40 rockets with a range of 160 kilometres (100 miles) aboard a ship allegedly transporting arms from Iran to the Gaza Strip. A statement said security forces searching the Klos-C had found "40 rockets (type M-302), up to the range of 160 kilometres, 181 122mm mortar shells, approximately 400,000 7.62-calibre rounds". It said the unloading and inspection of containers was carried out by a combined task-force from various units including the Israeli Navy, the Combat Engineering Corp and the Ordnance Corps. "Each one of these rockets poses a threat to the safety of the citizens of Israel -– each bullet and each rocket that was discovered had an Israeli address," army chief Lieutenant General Benny Gantz told sailors who took part in the operation.
