An attempt by Gazan terror factions to smuggle weapon parts into the Gaza Strip by sea was foiled last month by the Israeli Navy and the Shin Bet.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, security forces followed three Palestinians as they set sail from Gaza towards Egypt in a boat.

“When they tried to cross the border into Egypt’s territorial water, they were arrested by IDF units,” said the military.

Following further questioning by the Shin Bet, the three were discovered to be operating “in full coordination with and on behalf of Hamas elements in the [Gaza] Strip” and had intended to smuggle “forbidden equipment, some of which was destined for Hamas,” the navy said in a statement.
