Israeli and Egyptian officials have been accusing each other of being responsible for weapon smuggling from Sinai to Gaza, Army Radio reported Monday morning.
"Egypt can stop the smuggling within 24 hours if it wants, but it is not interested in doing such a thing," a senior Israeli intelligence official said. The official also blamed Egyptian police along the Sinai border for corruption and accepting bribes.
In response, an Egyptian official said, "For four years we have been hearing complaints from you about how we operate. We have been doing our best, and the Israelis know this very well."
