Wetsuits Seized at Kerem Shalom Crossing

20 June 2016

A special shipment has been intercepted at the Kerem Shalom Crossing. It is suspected that it was en route to Hamas' naval commando unit in the Gaza Strip.

Defense Ministry Land Crossings Authority inspectors at the Kerem Shalom Crossing, in conjunction with the ISA, have foiled an attempt to smuggle dozens of professional wetsuits that were suspected of being destined for terrorist elements in the Gaza Strip, including Hamas's naval commando unit.

The wetsuits were concealed in a seemingly innocent shipment of sportswear that had been imported from abroad into the Palestinian Authority areas and reshipped to the Gaza Strip. The shipment was seized and an investigation has been opened to locate those involved.
