Israel Nabs Rocket Building Materials Smuggled to Gaza
Fiberglass cylinders for long-range rockets found in ‘clothing’ shipment, week after fiberglass unearthed in Gazan ‘school supplies.’
A media gag order was lifted on Monday morning, revealing that customs workers at the Nitzana Border Crossing into Gaza together with general security services thwarted the smuggling of two tons of fiberglass cylinders into Gaza at the start of the month.
The fiberglass cylinders were discovered in a suspicious shipment, which according to the statement of the Gazan importer was supposed to contain only clothes and fabrics. An investigation unearthed the cylinders, which are forbidden for import into Gaza.
General security services estimate that the fiberglass was intended for usage by terrorists in Gaza, since it is a basic raw material used in constructing long-range rockets.
Illustrating the danger, fiberglass rockets were fired at Kibbutz Palmachim located to the south of Tel Aviv during last summer’s war.
