According to reports, the Iranian Navy has delivered cruise missiles and spy helicopters. According to the article, the Taleih cruise missile has a range of over 1,000 kilometres and is a smart missile that can change targets in the middle of a mission.

This comes after the US Department of Defense announced on Saturday that an Iranian-launched drone had collided with a Liberian-flagged chemical ship in the Indian Ocean. Following the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel and Israel's ensuing crackdown on Gaza, the incident highlighted rising regional tensions and a new threat to trade channels. Iran has denied any role in Houthi rebel attacks on commerce ships in the Red Sea.
