Another ton of explosives found by Egypt

From Ma'an:
Egyptian security seized one ton of explosives from a hidden weapons cache in the Sinai Peninsula on Saturday, the Israeli intelligence services reported.

An Egyptian official who spoke on the condition of anonymity said that security forces discovered 13 packages of explosives buried in the desert that are suspected to be bound for the Gaza Strip.
Before the war, Egypt found these caches fairly regularly. Judging from what Israel found in Gaza, clearly Egypt only has found a fraction of the weapons and explosives that were going to Hamas.

As far as the documented finds go, this one is on the larger side.

It is also noteworthy that nearly every article about the Rafah tunnels written by the MSM in 2008 focused on consumer goods being smuggled and ignored the weapons and munitions, as the reporters fell into the Hamas propaganda trick of misdirection.
