TEHRAN - Iran on Tuesday said Israel's presentation of a shipment of weapons seized on a ship in the Red Sea was "a farce." The IDF said the weapons originated in Iran and were on their way to the Gaza Strip.
"This is all a joke," said an Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Marzieh Afkham. These accusations "coincide with the (the main pro-Israel lobby in America) AIPAC meeting in the US, and while Iran's relations with different countries are improving." (AFP)
