Egyptian General: Hamas "Terrorizing Egyptians"

Osama Askar, commander of Egypt's Third Field Army, said Wednesday that 19 Grad rockets intercepted by the military on the Suez-Cairo highway were of the same brand as those used by Hamas' military wing, the Izz ad-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, and were on their way to Cairo "to help the Muslim Brotherhood against the Egyptian people."

He added that smuggled army uniforms captured by his troops last Sunday "were enough for an entire army."
