Egypt uncovers huge munitions cache intended for Hamas

Egyptian security forces uncovered an immense munitions cache near the Israeli border, the Arab language London-based newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported on Friday. An Egyptian official assessed that the 266 rockets, 51 mortar shells, 21 grenades and 43 mines found in northern Sinai were meant to be smuggled to Hamas forces in the Gaza Strip. Last Monday, Egypt discovered a large quantity of ammunition intended for Hamas use near Ismaeliya, Sinai.
