Egypt seizes Sinai explosives in second raid within 24 hours

April 8, 2013 10:04 P.M. (Updated: April 10, 2013 10:49 A.M.)
EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egyptian security forces found a stash of explosives in the Sinai peninsula on Monday, the second seizure of its kind in 24 hours.

Security forces received a tip-off that gunmen were storing explosives in the Ad-Daqqaq neighborhood in central Sinai, security sources told Ma'an.

Thirty-seven anti-aircraft shells were found when security forces raided the area.

Earlier Monday, a large Egyptian force raided al-Jora in Sheikh Zuweid and found an underground warehouse containing 15 anti-tank landmines, grenades and the same type of projectiles that have been used in confrontations with the Egyptian army.

The warehouse was located around five kilometers from the Israeli border, the official added.
