TEL AVIV “” Israel has found advanced military equipment in Hamas strongholds in the Gaza Strip.
Officials said Israeli military units in the northern Gaza Strip have found advanced infrared rifle sights and night-vision goggles in the homes of Hamas operatives. They said the night-vision equipment were similar to those used by Hizbullah during the war with Israel in July and August 2006.
“Forces uncovered large amounts of weaponry in one of the buildings, including rifles, ammunition and night-vision equipment,” an Israeli military statement said on Thursday. “The three Palestinians hiding the weaponry in their house were arrested and taken for questioning.”
Officials did not identify the infrared sights. Those used by Hizbullah in Lebanon were said to have been manufactured in Britain and exported to Iran in 2004 and 2005.
“It’s clear that Iran and Hizbullah plan on giving the Palestinians advanced equipment used in the war [in Lebanon],” an official said.
