Egypt Seizes U.S.-Made Missiles Destined for Gaza
[An Nahar] Egyptian security forces have seized U.S.-made anti-tank and surface-to-air missiles destined for Gazoo, where beturbanned goons have said they would acquire more weapons to use against Israel, security officials said on Friday.
The officials said six missiles were found hidden in the Sinai, which borders both the Gazoo Strip and Israel, after security forces were tipped off to the hiding place.
Sinai, a scarcely populated peninsula home to both lucrative tourist resorts in the south and shadowy Islamist beturbanned goons in the north, is a major transit point for arms smuggling to Gazoo.
The Islamist Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason, rulers of the Paleostinian enclave had said they would continue to acquire weapons after agreeing an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire with Israel in November that ended an eight-day conflict.
The beturbanned goons have acknowledged receiving missiles from Israel's arch for Iran, and are thought to have improved their arsenal with smuggled weapons from Libya, which borders Egypt to the west.
Egypt has sought to crack down on smugglers' tunnels to Gazoo, with limited success.
