Rocket materials caught at Nitzana border crossing, en route to Gaza

A gag order was lifted last week by the Israeli authorities revealing that smuggling attempts on illegal goods, such as parts needed in constructing rockets that originated from Egypt, have been blocked at the Nitzana border crossing in the past two months.

 

The Nitzana Border Crossing is an international border crossing between El Ouga and Nitzana, Israel.

 

The terminal handles commercial trade between the two nations. The latest smuggling incident that was caught occurred two weeks ago, when customs inspectors located and seized 1,200 tubes of polyurethane hidden in a shipment of silicone.

 

Polyurethane is an extremely durable and flexible synthetic material. Used in everything from toys to airplanes. Polyurethane has been forbidden from entry into Gaza given that it is used by terrorist organizations to produce rocket propulsion materials.

 

The latest incident is just the most recent in a string of attempts since the start of March, when two similar incidents occurred.
