Military fatigues stopped at Gaza border


Israeli border crossing workers discovered military clothing being smuggled into Gaza.

The military textiles, reportedly intended for use by Hamas for terror operations, were discovered Monday in a truck carrying humanitarian aid through the Kerem Shalom crossing. Some 90 trucks carrying humanitarian aid, including food and medicines, are permitted into Gaza daily.

Military textiles are not permitted to enter Gaza, defense officials said. The goods hidden in the humanitarian shipment took the place of real aid that was needed by the Palestinian population, according to the officials.
