The Jerusalem Post: Attempts to smuggle weapons, diving equipment and communications equipment into the Gaza Strip were stopped yesterday, the Israeli newspaper Maariv reported on Thursday morning.

Two hundred and fifty Israeli postal bags were transferred to the Gaza Strip through the Erez crossing – coordinated by the Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration on behalf of the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories.

Of the 250 Israeli postal bags shipped to Gaza, 172 packages were identified as “suspicious dual-use items”.

The Erez Transitional Officer (on behalf of the Gaza District Coordination Office (DCO)) seized and confiscated the suspicious products ordered online. The products contained military and electronic equipment that could be used for terrorist acts, Maariv reported.

Among the packages identified by the DCO officer were digital microscopes, weapons binoculars, flashlights and holders for weapons, scanners, electronic components, hidden cameras, communications equipment, diving lights and military boots.
