ISMAILIA, Egypt, Nov 7 (Reuters) – Egyptian police seized 250 kg (550 lb) of explosives destined for smuggling into the Palestinian territories, police officials said on Tuesday.
They said the explosives were hidden in four big plastic sacks in the Rafah area near Egypt’s border with the Gaza Strip.
Three men were spotted next to the explosives and ran away towards the Sinai peninsula once they saw police approaching, said the officials, speaking on a customary condition of anonymity.
Israel has said repeatedly that tonnes of munitions and explosives are being smuggled through tunnels from Sinai into Gaza but has presented scarce evidence that Gaza militants use such weaponry.
Egyptian police on Friday found 1.5 tonnes (3,300 lb) of explosives in two caches in Sinai. More than 100 people were killed in bomb attacks in tourist resorts in Sinai between October 2004 and April 2006.
Egypt has blamed the attacks on an Islamist militant group called al-Tawhid wal Jihad (One God and Jihad) and says the group is made up of Sinai bedouin with militant views.
