IN BRIEF - US Navy Seizes 1,400 Assault Rifles From Stateless Fishing Vessel

Thursday, January 06, 2022

U.S. Navy ships seized 1,400 AK-47 assault rifles and 226,600 rounds of ammunition from a stateless fishing vessel during a flag verification boarding on Dec. 20, the Navy said in a statement.

The seizure by the Navy’s 5th Fleet was “in accordance with customary international law in the North Arabian Sea,” the Navy said.

The United States announced sanctions in June 2021 against a smuggling network that it alleges “works with Iran’s Quds Force, the elite arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, to generate tens of millions of dollars in revenue from the sale of commodities, like Iranian petroleum,” a U.S. Treasury statement said.

The Navy said that the stateless vessel’s five crew members identified themselves as Yemeni nationals. The Navy said they will be returned to Yemen.
