Report: Egypt Seizes Grad Rockets Smuggled From Libya

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Defense News magazine has reported that Egypt last week seized a large weapons cache, smuggled from Libya into Egypt, not far from the Libyan border.

The cache included 138 Grad rockets and 139 Grad warheads, and the Egyptian interior ministry stated that police were searching for two men suspected of attempting to traffic the rockets “to the Sinai Peninsula or towards Palestine,” suggesting that the weapons were headed for Gaza.

The presence of extensive smuggling tunnel networks under the Gaza-Egypt border has Israel extremely concerned about the possibility that such weapons will find their way into the hands of the Hamas regime ruling in Gaza.
