150 anti-aircraft missiles found in Sinai

Aug. 31, 2010 6:01 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 1, 2010 5:18 P.M.)
EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) -- Egyptian authorities have discovered three stores of explosives bound for Gaza, officials said Tuesday.

Egyptian security sources say Cairo will continue a 10-day campaign against arms smuggling in the Sinai which began Thursday.

One warehouse was uncovered in Nakhel city netting 30 artillery shells and 20 anti-aircraft missiles.

A second cache was carved into the side of a mountain holding 80 anti-aircraft missiles.

A third with 50 anti-aircraft missiles and other electronic weaponry was found in Wadi Hurriya.

Security sources told Ma'an that the weapons were bound for Gaza's underground smuggling area in the border town of Rafah. Egyptian officials have expressed concern that the trade in arms bound for Gaza has become a lucrative industry in Egypt, and Cairo is focused on bringing it to an end.
