The Defense Ministry's Crossings Authority intercepted a shipment of fabrics it suspects were destined to be used to make uniforms for Hamas's military wing in Gaza and an ISIS offshoot in the Sinai Peninsula.
Personnel at the Kerem Shalom Crossing with Gaza found the fabrics in an Israeli truck, adding that a variety of colored uniforms and patterns were found.
"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.
