The Navy, using marine robots, pulled out of the water off the coast of Gaza on Thursday four sacks containing high-quality explosives. The sacks were thrown overboard from a Palestinian ship trying to smuggle explosives into Gaza earlier in the week. The IDF caught the ship on Sunday with eight remaining sacks of explosives and mines on board. The sacks captured on Thursday each contained 50 kilograms of explosives and were taken from a depth of greater than 100 meters.
