Ad Feedback

NORTHERN SINAI, Egypt - An Egyptian security patrol uncovered a huge weapons cache near the border with Israel, the London-based Arabic-language newspaper, al-Quds al-Arabi, reported.

Security forces found 266 Kassam rockets, 43 land mines, 51 shells, 178 machine gun bullets, 21 grenades and three anti-tank missiles waiting to be smuggled to Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

In a nearby hideout, security forces found another 20 rockets, 50 more grenades, 80 mortar shells and around 500 bullets.

No suspects have been arrested so far, according to the paper.

Meanwhile, the Lebanese al-Mustakbal newspaper reported on Egypt's arrest earlier this year of four members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards believed to have been organizing a terror cell focused on espionage.

According to the report, the group's leader, an Iranian intelligence officer, used a false Iraqi passport to enter Egypt.

Last month, Egypt arrested 49 members of a Hezbollah cell, who were planning a number of terror-related activities, including the smuggling of munitions and explosives to the Gaza Strip via five smuggling tunnels uncovered by Egyptian security forces.
