Israel Intercepts Weapons Shipment to Gaza

Yesterday we reported on the latest rockets fired into Israel from Gaza. Today, Arutz Sheva's Kobi Finkler reports that a shipment of materials to make mortars was intercepted by Israeli authorities before it could reach the Gaza Strip:

Border control agents, working in conjunction with the Shin Bet internal security agency, confiscated a large shipment at the Tarkumia Crossing in the Hevron region.

The shipment, bound for Gaza via Israel, carried a large quantity of building materials for rockets and mortars, along with heavy-duty electric motors, used to construct and fortify underground facilities.

Security officials believe the shipment was destined for the Hamas terror organization.
