4 Charged in Deaths of Navy SEALS

(Patriot.Buzz) – Providing closure following the atrocious actions targeting the patriotic members of our military, the Department of Justice announced charges against four individuals for being involved in the death of two Navy SEALs in the Arabian Sea.

Muhammad Pahlawan, Mohammad Mazhar, Ghufran Ullah and Izhar Muhammad face legal action for their roles in the incident, which saw Navy Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Christopher J. Chambers and Navy Special Warfare Operator 2nd Class Nathan Gage Ingram tragically swept overboard.

Both Ingram and Chambers were part of an operation to intercept Iranian-made weapons in the Arabian Sea and were officially declared dead by the United States Navy following the event.

Judicial documents revealed that the operation was aimed at intercepting ballistic missile components aboard a dhow—a traditional cargo vessel originating from Iran.

This mission was conducted from the USS Lewis B. Puller, which is an expeditionary support vessel in the region, in collaboration with the United States Coast Guard’s Maritime Safety and Security Team.

FBI Special Agent Patrick Francisco outlined in a court document for the DOJ that the boarding team successfully discovered and confiscated suspected Iranian-manufactured advanced weaponry aboard the dhow.

This haul included vital parts for medium-range ballistic missiles and anti-ship cruise missiles, which included a warhead and elements necessary for propulsion and guidance.

Francisco highlighted that Pahlawan, Mazhar, Ullah and Muhammad all provided false information during interrogations by the MSST so they were all indicted for lying to federal law enforcement officials.

Additionally, Pahlawan, who served as the dhow’s captain, faces charges related to the transport of explosives.

In his statement Francisco detailed the discovery of the weaponry and noted it was found unmarked and hidden within compartments at the dhow’s front.

“Much or all of the weaponry was concealed inside tubing or among buoys,” he further disclosed and emphasized the hidden manner in which these arms were stashed aboard the vessel.
