Egyptian security forces on Monday uncovered a weapons cache and workshop producing fake military uniforms in Sinai, Israel Radio reported.

According to the report, the army and police force revealed a weapons cache containing explosives, anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles in El-Arish. Police suspect that the fake uniforms found were intended to be used for terrorist activities, or to attempt a coup.

Egyptian security forces arrested 25 Hamas and Al-Qaida suspects attempting to cross from north to south Sinai, Israel Radio quoted Sinai security sources as saying. The suspects were found in possession of weapons, ammunition and satellite communications equipment, according to sources.
