Egyptian security forces found a weapons cache 10 km from the Gaza border, Maan reported on Sunday.

The cache was reportedly found in Sheikh Zwayyid, a city near Gaza, after Egyptian forces received a tip about smugglers planning to sneak weapons and explosives into Gaza through tunnels. Police found 14 cannon cartridges and 11 grenades in a ditch in the ground.
