Today (Sunday), the prosecution filed an indictment against a Gaza resident for smuggling diving equipment into the Gaza Strip and selling it to Hamas’ military wing. The indictment states that the salesman transferred a great deal of sporting goods to the terrorist organization’s military wing.

About three months ago, JOL reported that the security inspectors at the Kerem Shalom Border Crossing foiled an attempt to smuggle dozens of professional diving suits into the Gaza Strip. According to assessments, the diving suits were intended for terrorist organization, including Hamas’ naval commando unit.

According to the Defense Ministry, the diving suits were concealed in a shipment of sporting equipment and clothing that was sent from abroad to the West Bank. The shipment was seized and an investigation was launched in order to identify and locate those involved.

About a month prior to this incident, the Crossing Authority and Shin Bet foiled an attempt to smuggle materials for creating weapons and building tunnels into Gaza. In this case, the items were concealed in a shipment of textiles and jewelry.
