Egyptian warplanes take out 10 arms smugglers’ vehicles from Libya

Egyptian military jets destroyed 10 vehicles carrying weapons, ammunition and smuggled goods near the country’s western desert border with Libya, the army said on Saturday. DEBKAfile: This border is an open route for weapons smugglers to transfer contraband through Sinai to other parts of the Middle East, as well as supplying the jihadists fighting the Egyptian army in the peninsula. In a new crackdown, the Egyptian army said:  “The air force dealt with them and destroyed them completely and killed all the elements inside.” He gave no date for the operation.
