Greek authorities have seized 5,000 shotguns and half a million rounds of ammunition found aboard the Haddad 1, which was heading to the Libyan city of Misrata.
Videos released by the Hellenic Coast Guard show officers uncovering the arms, which had no accompanying documents and were concealed by furniture and gym mats.
The ship set off from the Turkish port of Iskenderun, about 50km from the Syrian border, at the end of last month and was intercepted near Crete.
“Their co-ordination, speed, high sense of professionalism and seriousness in the preparation and combination of information led to the identification of this ship and the large quantity of arms and ammunition.
The port of Misrata is controlled by Libya Dawn, an Islamist umbrella group that seized control of the capital, Tripoli, last year, ousting the internationally-recognised government.
Greek media reportedly suggested that an offshoot of Islamic State, based in the nearby city of Sirte, was to be the final recipient.
Foreign ministry spokesman Tanju Bilgic told Reuters: "If investigations by the Greek authorities show that the consignment is going to receivers other than those stated in the documentation, and if that is shared with us, naturally measures could be taken."
Further info will be posted as we receive the updates.
Their furniture arrived --- All 52 Tons of
ARMS and AMMUNITION !
Think outside the furniture box!
This “furniture shipment” was supposed to go to the refugee camps in GREECE to make their life more bearable and ease their hardships.
52 tons of guns and ammunition in big 40’ double containers followed the migrants to Europe, pretending to be furniture but was discovered by the Greek border security in 14 containers.
I've been looking for this, here is some of it, I can't see his name on the purchase order, oops the US Government has been purchasing all the ammunition ?
If this doesn’t convince you that this IMMIGRATION is nothing less
than an ARMED INVASION then nothing will.
More of the Ammo stash - Is this WHY the US Government Has been purchasing all the hollow point ammunition for the past 3 years?
Wonder still why all those young (military age) men without children or wives are taking on the task of traveling all those miles posing as refugees?
They are coming.......Like they said they would.
Coming to a gun-free place of work
a Gov't building near you.
Don't wait for it to go away, it won't !!!
