Israel intercepts Gaza-bound weapons supplies

(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Israeli security forces thwarted the smuggling of a Gaza-bound shipment of supplies used in projectile manufacturing, the Israeli Defense Ministry said Thursday, May 26. The shipment, intended for the Hamas terror group, was supposed to be smuggled into Gaza through the Kerem Shalom crossing. It was intercepted at the Tarkumia checkpoint by Shin Bet security agency officers and their counterparts at the Defense Ministry’s Crossings Directorate. The contraband included hundreds of steel pipes used for the production of mortar shells, electric engines and engine parts used by Hamas to rebuild its network of cross-border terror tunnels, and dozens of rockets. It was hidden inside a shipment containing textiles and jewelry.
