The USA has handed over to the Armed Forces of Ukraine more than five thousand weapons seized during the inspection of ships delivering goods from Iran to the Houthis in Yemen. Central Command of the US Armed Forces (CENTCOM) said in the social network X.

This cargo included AK-47 assault rifles, machine guns, sniper rifles and RPG-7 hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers. Ukraine received these weapons and more than 500,000 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition on 4 April.

According to CENTCOM, these small arms are enough to equip one Ukrainian brigade. During the operation between May 2021 and February 2023, a total of four cargo ships travelling to Yemen with these small arms were detained, the command said in a statement.
