Authorities foil attempt to smuggle wetsuits to Hamas

Security guards at the Kerem Shalom Border Crossing, along with the Israel Security Agency (ISA, also known as the Shin Bet or Shabak), foiled an attempt to smuggle dozens of professional wetsuits into Gaza.

The suits were hidden in seemingly innocent shipments of sports clothing and equipment, which were imported in order to supply the Palestinian Authority.

According to security officials, they were intended for use by terrorists, including Hamas naval commandos.

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.
