The Navy provides monetary incentives for information on guns and narcotics traffickers in the Persian Gulf.

The Persian Gulf is one of the world’s busiest and most disputed waterways. The Navy seized a tiny vessel in the North Arabian Sea in 2021 and discovered a large weapons stash that took 36 hours to empty. These interdictions also resulted in the seizure of more than $500 million worth of illicit substances, which is more than the prior four years combined. Consequently, the objectives are out there. The U.S. Navy offers cash incentives for information on guns and narcotics traffickers in the Persian Gulf.

As part of this battle, the United Nations has placed Yemen under a weapons embargo. Vice Admiral Brad Cooper, head of Naval Central Command, explains that this also boosts alertness and aids anti-terrorism activities.
