More Weapons Intercepted

Now we see another story of a major weapons shipment thwarted before getting into Gaza. This is the second in two days, and it is alarming for two reasons. First, the article:

Egypt intercepts weapons from Sudan bound for Gaza

Egyptian security officials say large quantities of mortars, rocket propelled grenades, rifles and explosives meant to reach Hamas through smuggling tunnels seized after shootout.

Egyptian security officials on Tuesday said that Egypt's army captured five vehicles smuggling weapons into the country from Sudan, and apparently heading to Gaza, AP reported.

The officials said the vehicles were seized on Sunday after a shootout during which the drivers fled.

They said the trucks, which were captured inside Egypt near the Sudanese border, carried large quantities of mortars, rocket propelled grenades, rifles and explosives, reported AP.

The officials said the weapons were headed to Hamas in Gaza through smuggling tunnels.

The IDF also seized a freighter ship with dozens of tons of weaponry from Iran headed for Hamas in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

The ship, known as Victoria, was flying a Liberian flag, and was seized by the navy in the Mediterranean Sea, 200 miles off of Israel's coast.

This is a small story that won't receive much press, but it is very very interesting.

As a prophecy watcher we are all watching for events leading into the battle of Gog-MaGog. We watch for this closely, quite simply because God will reveal Himself to the world in a dramatic manner. It doesn't get any 'bigger' than this.

We know that Northern Africa is part of this, therefore we watch closely for involvement in Northern African countries in Israeli affairs. Now we seem to be seeing it.

Given the nature of radical Islam in northern Africa, it isn't a stretch to see them easily aligned with the Iran-Turkey-Russia alliance.

Now we have tangible proof that at least certain parts of Northern Africa are presently doing their part in the overall effort to destroy Israel.

That's quite a development.

The second reason for alarm is the fact that more weapons are now making their way into Israel. War preparations are well under way and continuing as the build-up for the expected wars continue.
