A US Navy warship seized weapons believed to be of Iranian "design and manufacture," including 150 anti-tank guided missiles and three Iranian surface-to-air missiles, the American military said.
It did not say what kind of surface-to-air missiles were seized.
"The crew of the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy (CG 60), in accordance with worldwide law, seized an illicit shipment of advanced weapons and weapon components, which held 358 surface-to-air missile components and "Dehlavieh" anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM), intended for the Houthis in Yemen", the statement said.
U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) announced the seizure Thursday, four days after sailors with the USS Normandy boarded a dhow in the Arabian Sea and found the secret cache.
"The action by the Normandy in seizing the arms cache was the first publicly announced haul haul for the U.S. Navy since a January 4 drone strike at Baghdad's International Airport that killed Iranian Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani", Military.comobserved. "They're all very consistent with what we know about weapons that have been made in Iran".

"Those weapons were determined to be of Iranian origin and assessed to be destined for the Houthis in Yemen", the US Central Command said.
Arrangements were being made for US experts and experts from allied nations and worldwide organizations to inspect the seized weapons.
Officials said there was no evidence to link any of the crew members to any militant groups. They were released by the USS Normandy after the illicit weapons were secured.
