Terrorist Network Smuggles Large Quantities of Equipment into Israel

Download PDF for this date

Security sources revealed tonight that a terrorist network has succeeded in smuggling large quantities of explosives, detonators and demolition material into the country. A number of Arabs from Nablus have been detained in the course of an investigation that began 10 days ago, the sources said.

At that time, two Nablus Arabs were arrested at Haifa port while trying to clear two crates consigned to them through customs. The crates were found to contain about 40 kilograms of plastic explosives. Security officials learned afterwards that this was the third consignment smuggled into the country. The two previous consignments passed through customs undetected.
