"They were, according to our suspicions, meant for sewing workshops in Gaza that make uniforms for various Hamas units," the Crossings Authority said. Fabrics for uniforms of the type used by ISIS in Sinai were also found.

More than 500 attempts to smuggle banned goods into Gaza were intercepted by the Crossings Authority in 2015 alone.
