A large arms cache allegedly intended to be smuggled into the Gaza Strip was discovered in the Sinai Desert.

Egyptian security forces found the cache, including 100 anti-aircraft missiles and other explosives, early Thursday morning, according to Egyptian reports cited in the Israeli press.

The weapons reportedly were collected from the areas of past battle zones. The weapons smugglers are believed to be Sinai Bedouin.

The find comes a day after Egyptian police discovered 41 cars and other vehicles used for smuggling merchandise into Gaza, the French news agency AFP reported. The vehicles were confiscated in the Sinai.

Three new smuggling tunnels connecting Rafah to Gaza also were discovered Wednesday.
