IDF finds another 800 kilos of potassium nitrate

The IDF announced this evening that last month it intercepted a truck headed for Samaria with eight hundred kilos of potassium nitrate. Potassium nitrate is used in making bombs. Last month, the IDF announced that it had found an even larger shipment of the material headed for the Gaza Strip. Of course, our 'peace partner' isn't in charge in Gaza these days.
The Israel Defense Forces, the civil administration in the West Bank, and the police combined to halt the truck as it approached the Green Line in the Qalqilyah region. The vehicle was found to be carrying cargo containing 800 kilograms of potassium nitrate.
The implication is that it was coming from within Israel. That's curious.

Carl - who would be supplying a controlled substance WITHIN Israel to the PA? That's curious. And 800 kilos from where? There's smuggling between Israel and the territories and not all of necessarily gets intercepted by the security forces.

Its not hard to imagine how much harder Israel's job would be if the IDF did not have a presence on BOTH sides of the border. Which it doesn't have in Gaza. It hasn't dawned on Israel's leadership the reason there isn't quiet in Gaza is because the IDF can't patrol both sides of the border there, thanks to the erroneous Disengagement and its aftermath.
