Security forces in cooperation with the Shin Bet stopped a shipment of metal tubes and water pumps into the Gaza Strip Thursday morning.
The metal tubes are of the variety typically used by Hamas terrorists to construct mortars, while the water pumps are typically used to pump water out of Hamas tunnels as they are being dug. The items were being shipped disguised in a textile and jewlery shipment. The seizure occurred at the Tarkumiya checkpoint next to Hebron.
