An attempt to smuggle weapon equipment, scuba diving equipment and communications equipment into the Gaza Strip was foiled on Wednesday, Maariv reported Thursday morning.
Two hundred and fifty Israeli mail bags were transferred into the Gaza Strip through the Erez crossing, and was coordinated by the Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration on behalf of the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories. 

Of the 250 Israeli mail bags transferred into Gaza, 172 packages were identified as "suspected dual-use products." 
The Erez Crossing officer, on behalf of the Gaza District Coordination Office (DCO), seized and confiscated the suspicious items that were ordered on the Internet, which contained military and electronic equipment that could be used for terrorist purposes, Maariv reported.
Among the packages identified by the DCO officer, there were digital microscopes, weapon sights, flashlights and holsters for weapons, scanners, electronic components, telephone space, hidden cameras, communications equipment, diving lights and military boots.
