Palestinian from Gaza charged in Israeli court for attempting to smuggle weapons to Hamas

Nov. 6, 2016 6:50 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 6, 2016 10:22 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A 23-year-old Palestinian man from the Gaza Strip was charged in an Israeli court on Sunday for attempting to smuggle weapons to members of the Hamas movement in the besieged coastal enclave, according to Hebrew news sites.

Prosecutors from the Israeli Central Court of Beersheba reportedly charged the young man with attempting to smuggle 200 kilos of weapons from Egypt to Gaza in 2015 -- a job he would have been paid $1,200 for.

His attempt was said to have been “foiled” by the Egyptian army, who also detained him at the time of the incident.

The man, whose identity remained unknown, was also charged with smuggling “diving equipment” from Egypt to Gaza in 2013, using a fishing boat allegedly given to him by the Hamas movement.
