In coordination with the Armed Forces, border guards managed to destroy 38 underground tanks used to store fuel at the northeastern border in Sinai, an Armed Forces spokesperson said.
 
In a statement on Facebook, the spokesperson said 28 of the tanks were used to store diesel and carried 634,000 liters and 10 tanks contained gasoline, with a storage capacity of 2,600,000 liters.
 
Meanwhile, MENA reported that 300,000 liters of diesel were seized before reaching Gaza as well as pumps used to pump fuel to Gaza.
