Sinai Weapons Cache Found

Egyptian security forces said Sunday that they had found a weapons cache on the side of the road, between Islameliya and Port Sa'id. The cache contained 8 missiles and 3 barrels for long-range firing. Empty crates that had held weapons were also found, the Egyptians said.

Several days ago, reports in Egypt said that soldiers had succeeded in preventing the smuggling of weapons from Libya to Egypt. Israel security officials said recently that Libya was set to become a new source of weapons for Gaza Arab and Sinai Bedouin terrorists.
