November 8, The U.S. Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard have seized a cargo of explosive chemicals from a dhow en route to Yemen.

According to 5th Fleet Commander Vice Adm Brad Cooper : “This was a massive amount of explosive material, enough to fuel more than a dozen medium-range ballistic missiles. The unlawful transfer of lethal aid from Iran does not go unnoticed. It is irresponsible, dangerous, and leads to violence and instability across the Middle East.”
