The weapons, WND reports, include between several hundred and 1,300 tons of advanced rockets; anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles; rocket propelled grenades; raw explosives; rifles; ammunition; and other heavy weaponry.

Israel has long complained that the arrangements at the Egypt-Gaza border crossing are not satisfactory, and that the European monitors are ineffectual in stopping the smuggling. Then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon agreed to the deal last November, after U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice arrived in the region and gave her stamp of approval.

WND's Aaron Klein quotes Abu Ahmed, leader of the northern Gaza chapter of

the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group, as saying the terrorists are working towards, and succeeding in, turning Gaza into a Hizbullah-like threat against Israel.

"We learned from Hizbullah's victory that Israel can be defeated if we know

how to hit them and if we are well prepared," Abu Ahmed said. "We are

importing rockets and the knowledge to launch them and we are also making

many plans for battle."

WND also quotes another terrorist leader - Abu Abdullah, reported to be a top member of the Izaddin Al-Kassam Brigades of Hamas - detailing the preparations for war against Israel.

"In the last 15 months," Abu Adullah said, " though the fighters of Hamas kept the ceasefire, we did not stop making important advancements and professional training on the military level. In the future, after Hamas is obliged to stop the ceasefire, the world shall see our new military capabilities." He said that Hamas and Hizbullah, which has cells in Sinai, are cooperating in importing rockets and guerilla training.
