Israeli naval forces did not find any arms on a ship intercepted in the Mediterranean Sea.

The HS Beethoven, flying a Liberian flag, was intercepted Sunday off the northern coast of Israel and boarded by the elite naval commando unit Shayetet 13.

The inspection, called a “routine” security check by the military, was undertaken with the permission of the ship’s captain. The commandos boarded the ship without incident, Haaretz reported.
