Egypt seizes tons of TNT for Gaza

Firas Press reports that Egyptian security forces discovered a warehouse near the Gaza border with bags filled with TNT, in the sizes necessary to transport through Rafah tunnels. Recently they also seized M-16s and missile warheads. Egypt also discovered five tunnels, including one from a house that was over 100 meters from the border.

The smuggling tunnels are still being used for explosives and weapons, but the media only talks about consumer goods.

By the way, Israel's recent delivery of cement to Gaza for humanitarian purposes was partially seized by Hamas to build weapons bunkers. And this delivery was closely coordinated with UNRWA and the World Bank.
