The Israeli Navy Wednesday morning thwarted an attempt to smuggle what may have been explosives form Egypt into Gaza.

After two “fishing” boats encroached on international waters and refused orders from the Navy to stop, soldiers opened fire and hit the vessels, setting off secondary explosions. Two Arabs suffered light to moderate wounds.

Arab sources in Gaza said that the boat was loaded with cigarettes and tobacco.

The explosions indicate that the fire hit the engine room or that the cigarettes were of special varieties that blow up when lit.

Or perhaps, just maybe, the “tobacco” was a load of explosives and ammunition.
