On Monday ,March 28th, a U.S. Navy ship seized a massive Iranian arms shipment in the Arabian Sea The seizure included thousands of weapons, AK-47 rifles and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, the Pentagon stated.

Iran has been supporting Houthi rebels in Yemen in their proxy war against a Saudi-led coalition backed by the United States. Like Iran, the Houthis are a Shia-led group.

The Navy said the shipment included 1,500 AK-47s, 200 rocket-propelled grenade launchers and 21 .50-caliber machine guns.

The Islamic Republic continues to thumb its nose at the international community with provocative actions. On Friday, President Obama said Iran was obeying the "letter" of its landmark nuclear agreement with the West, but not the "spirit" of it.
