"Vast Amount of Arms" Enter Gaza

(Jerusalem Post) Margot Dudkevitch - "We know that in the past two days vast amounts of ammunition, weapons and wanted men entered Gaza. We fear that some of the weapons will make their way to the West Bank," a senior Israeli security official said. "We have no way of knowing who has entered Gaza in recent days; even someone like Osama Bin Laden could have shaved off his beard and entered," the official said. Because of this situation, when Israel reopens the Erez border crossing into Israel from Gaza, Palestinians would have to undergo stringent security checks. Egyptian Ambassador to Israel Mohamed Assem Ibrahim said law and order on the border would be restored. "You can be sure that people do not need to smuggle weapons into Gaza, there are enough there already," he said.
