Israel thwarts attempted smuggling of commando knives in Gaza

The Crossing Security Services Authority in the Defense Ministry thwarted an attempted smuggling into the Gaza Strip of commando knives on Tuesday.


The discovery of the knives was made by the authority and the Shin Bet at the Kerem Shalom border crossing on the Strip’s Egypt-Israel border on a shipment of plumbing tools.


Two crates, concealed between different plumbing tools, were found to contain the professional commando knives, 30cm in length.


Moreover, graphite strips were discovered that were intended for a Palestinian electrical company. The graphite is a raw material used to produce fuel required for rockets. Both discoveries were confiscated and an investigation was launched to locate the individual or individuals responsible for the attempted smuggling.
