Israel Police and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Service) thwarted an attempt during recent days by Palestinians to smuggle explosives from the Gaza Strip into Israel via Karni Crossing, it was released for publication on Wednesday. The IDF said the explosives were found hidden in a cage after smugglers managed to get them through the heavily guarded cargo crossing in central Gaza. The army said the explosives, six kilograms of TNT, were headed for a Palestinian in the West Bank town of Tulkarm and were destined to be used in a terror attack against Israelis.
