According to a BBC report, a large stockpile of unexploded weapons has vanished in Gaza. Last known whereabouts: A storehouse under Hamas watch.
The story: Some of the weaponry used by Israel in last month’s Operation “Cast Lead” failed to explode as it should have. This live ordnance is extremely dangerous, and special UN teams have been working to collect the shells and destroy them safely. In the interim, as the materiel was being collected and the dispolsal coordinated with Israel, the shells were placed in a storehouse guarded by Hamas members.
So what happened to these weapons? Likely Hamas commandeered them for their own purposes. Meanwhile, the UN is demanding the materiel be returned in order to avoid a catastrophe.
