Report: Iran Smuggling Weapons into Gaza through Egypt

Iranian ships laded with weapons meant for Hamas are making their way to the Persian Gulf on to Sudan. The weapons will then be delivered through the Egyptian-held Sinai Peninsula and eventually into Gaza, according to a report on CNN.

The weapons and missile parts are to be unloaded and smuggled through the numerous underground tunnels from the Sinai to Gaza.

United States officials told CNN news that both the Israeli and American governments are aware of the smuggling operations and are following events closely.
