good going Cyprus. bad bad Iran. I'm glad they got the ship before it could make it to Gaza. Iran has big bombs and rockets.
A Terrorist nation supplying these kind of weapons to terrorist entities is not a good thing. The war just quietly ended a few days ago, and this seems silly of them to do if this country ever wants to be excepted into modern society, and taken seriously. 'dumb' is the word that comes to mind first, 'expected' is the next.
Will there be a response?

I call BS on this one.

The same ship had already been boarded and it's cargo inspected, then allowed to continue on it's way.
Now they say it was going to Syria before Gaza? Even the local Gazan fishing boats and boats full of journalists with food and medical aid get intercepted by Israeli naval vessels. Does anyone honestly think this ship would be able to get anywhere near Gaza?

More booga booga from the US and Israelis in the absence of any actual proof Iran is supplying arms to Gaza. They haven't even been able to provide any evidence that the guns Hamas use have come from Iran (and they only have small arms and homemade rockets).

One has to wonder where all these alleged Iranian arms shipments end up as it sure doesn't look like the Gazans have them.

Iran arms ship released by U.S. Navy now 'sailing to Syria'

By Yossi Melman and Natasha Mozgovaya, Haaretz Correspondents Tags: Israel News, Iran, Gaza

The captain of a ship that the United States Navy recently detained has said his vessel is now en route to Syria. The boat was initially believed to be carrying arms destined for Hamas, though sources say the weapons will likely be delivered to Hezbollah. The U.S. navy was forced to release the ship, which it had detained in the Red Sea on suspicion of carrying arms to Hamas-ruled Gaza. Weapons of various kinds were found aboard the ship, which was flying the Cypriot flag when it was stopped January 19, the U.S. military said. The ship was released Tuesday when it became apparent that there was no legal basis for holding it.


A completely LEGAL delivery of arms to Syria?

The war just ended? You're kidding right?

It just started. The part were you are misinterpreting is by calling Iran a "terrorist" nation, so what is Israel? God's gift?

Propaganda these days sure does brainwash people bad.
