The UK Seized Iranian Weapons, Now What? – Analysis

Seth J. Frantzman

Jerusalem Post, July 11, 2022

“In just the past four months, two US Navy ships have stopped two shipments containing a variety of advanced weapons, many of which are Iranian-made versions of Russian designs or Iranian-designed munitions.”

The UK’s Royal Navy seized Iranian weapons during two incidents this January and February. According to the reports, the HMS Montrose saw Iranian speedboats that were transporting packages containing weaponry. The Royal Navy released a statement late last week about the incidents.

“The seized packages were returned to the UK for technical analysis, which revealed that the shipment contained multiple rocket engines for the Iranian-produced 351 land-attack cruise missile and a batch of 358 surface-to-air missiles,” the Royal Navy said. These included cruise-missile components as well. The US Navy assisted in one of the incidents.

“This action demonstrates that we will not allow irresponsible and aggressive acts by Iran to go unchecked on land, sea and air,” US Central Command spokesman Col. Joseph Buccino said in a statement.
