Five missiles seized in Cairo

A vehicle loaded with five missiles was seized in North Sinai’s city of Rafah, bordering the Gaza Strip, while a security officer was killed in the area later on Saturday. 

‘The car was carrying five Grad r

ockets, a number of grenades, land mines and machine guns,’ reported Xinhua citing a source. At a checkpoint, the border securitymen shot at two suspected vehicles passing through the mountain area in North Sinai and managed to seize one while the other escaped. 

In past two years, authorities have confiscated many smuggled weapons and explosives in Sinai Peninsula due to the lack of security since the 2011 unrest.
