How did American anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles end up on Hamas doorstep?
On Friday, Egyptian authorities following a tip from local Bedouin seized six US-made antiaircraft and anti-tank missiles. The missiles are believed to have been smuggled from Libya and likely destined for the Gaza Strip. This brings more reality to the conspiracy theories that Obama was using the US embassy in Libya to smuggle US made weapons to Syrian terrorist. It appears the Whitehouse could be supplying Hamas as well.
“With the help of secret informants, the police found the storage site, where they found six US-made advanced missiles inside large holes in the ground that were waiting to be smuggled to the Gaza Strip through tunnels,” one security source said.
Security officials say the missiles, which were found near el Arish in the Northern Sinai, have a range of up to two kilometers, according to the Associated Press. The make and model of the weapons seized were not specified.
Today’s seizure comes just a few weeks after Egyptian authorities foiled an attempt to smuggle 17 short-range rockets into Gaza.
On Wednesday, Israel completed most of its border fence with Egypt. The barrier is intended to help prevent the influx illegal migrants as well as stop jihadists operating in the Sinai from carrying out attacks in Israel.
