Egypt uncovers arms cache in Sinai desert

Egypt has been helping the US and Israel with their dirty work by uncovering an arms cache, thought to be destined for Gaza.
The El Youm Al Sabe’ (The Seventh Day) Egyptian paper, reported Thursday that the cache includes 100 antiaircraft missiles, 45 Rocket Propelled Grenades, and 40 explosive devices.

The paper said that the Egyptian officer in charge of security in northern Sinai, obtained information stating the smugglers are storing explosives and ammunition left from previous wars in the area.

Egyptian security sources stated that some smugglers use explosives left from previous wars in order to extract TNT, and smuggle it to Gaza through the tunnels.
Egypt previously located and confiscated dozens of tons of explosives in Sinai, and in the Egyptian city of Rafah. more
