an excerpt:
"Mofaz said the navy, 500 km (300 miles) from home, seized Katyusha
rockets with range up to 20 km (12 miles), assault rifles, anti-tank
missiles, ***mines***, ammunition and explosives.
Mofaz said most of the weapons were Iranian and were to have been
smuggled into territory under Palestinian control."
