Israeli intelligence believes that Palestinians have succeeded in smuggling into the Gaza Strip a few anti-aircraft and 305 anti-tank missiles since Israel withdrew from the coastal area, Internal Security Minister Gideon Ezra said. The weapons were smuggled into Gaza in the chaotic aftermath of the withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in September when the border with Egypt was wide open, Ezra told Israel Radio. According to Ezra, Israel must ensure that Palestinian terrorists don't transfer the weapons to the West Bank, where they would be closer to Israeli cities. "We need to better monitor those people (Palestinians) who cross from Gaza to the West Bank and carry out the searches that are needed there," Ezra said.
