The seizure comes at a time when Israel is under increased scrutiny over additional settlement constructions in the occupied territories. If any weapons are found and are shown to be from Iran, Israel’s contention that Iran poses a continued threat to the Middle East peace process may be viewed as increasingly plausible.
