Egypt seizes big stockpile of anti-aircraft missiles in Sinai

A large stockpile of anti-aircraft missiles and motorized paragliders were found in the ongoing Egyptian armed forces’ counter terror operation in Sinai in the last ten days, a military spokesman revealed in Cairo. Egypt has accused the Palestinian Hamas which rules the Gaza Strip of teaching Islamists in Sinai how to plant bombs and giving them landmines.  The spokesman said two bombs were found under a security observation tower with detonation fuses running through a tunnel into Gaza.   He said the army had destroyed more than 154 tunnels on the border with Gaza.
