On Monday, the Shin Bet, Israel’s security service, aka the Shabak, intercepted an attempt to smuggle diving suits into Gaza.
It was part of a series of attempts to smuggle weapons and equipment into Gaza.
In last summer’s war with Gaza, Hamas terrorists attempted to infiltrate into Kibbutz Zikim by sea. The IDF intercepted the terrorists (see videos below).
The diving suits were part of Hamas’s attempt to build up it’s naval terror unit.
In April, security officials found hidden welding electrodes hidden in marble slabs, and materials used for making metal weapons hidden in dry food packages.
The could be used for making rockets and other weapons.
Hamas is not the only smuggler of terror paraphanalia.
Earlier this week customs officials at Ben Gurion Airport intercepted a shipment of silver rings with ISIS slogans on them on their way to Ramallah.
