Under the shades of the se trees which gave cover from being spotted from the air. hidden in the these groves were hundreds of crates of explosives, artillery shells and ammunition. the crates bore clear markings that they originated from NATO countries, some arab countries, some of the them writings in arabic showing that the suppliers were arab countries.

    some of them shipped from egypt whose 7.9 mm Hakim rifles were also found in unpacked crates.
