Egypt says its air force destroyed 15 vehicles laden with arms crossing from Libya’s border

Egypt’s army forces foiled an attempt to smuggle arms into the country through its western border with Libya, the military said Sunday.

The Egyptian air forces launched a reconnaissance mission Saturday following intelligence received that “criminals” in 4×4 vehicles were in the process of crossing into Egypt, the army said in a statement, according to Ahram Online.

During the operation, which continued into Sunday, forces destroyed 15 vehicles “laden with weapons, explosives and other smuggled items.” Ahram Online added.

Forces launched a hunt to catch the “criminals,” the statement added.
