UN: Klos C Weapons Weren't Destined for Gaza

A UN report leaked over the weekend claims that the Klos C weapons ship seized by Israel earlier this year indeed came from Iran, as Israel claimed – but that its weapons were destined for Sudan, not Gaza. The report did not specify why the special UN panel investigating the matter concluded that the weapons were meant for rebel groups in Sudan, and not for Gaza Arab terrorists, as Israel believes.

The ship, which flew a Panamanian flag, carried dozens of B-302 missiles that have a range of up to 200 kilometers. Israel at the time called the capture  a “game changer” in the effort to show the world Iran’s real intentions.
