Egypt intercepts tons of explosives for Hamas

From Ma'an:
Egyptian authorities on Saturday seized 2.5 tonnes of explosives hidden in three trucks en-route to the Sinai Peninsula.

The trucks contained different types of explosive materials and mortar devices, Egyptian sources said, which were hidden in tires within the vehicles.

On Friday, an Egyptian army officer was shot dead by snipers in the city of El-Arish, while earlier this week Egyptian military forces foiled an attempted car-bombing near a Sinai military base.
There may be quiet on the Gaza front now, but Hamas is sure gearing up for the next round...
