Selected quotes of Egyptian denial of smuggling tunnels in the past
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date:21 November 2012
What really displeases us, Secretary, is that some Israeli circles are
raising that issue internationally, in the United Nations, claiming that
there are lots and lots of weapons smuggled across Egypt. And that is
something that we very much object to.
Egyptian Foreign Minister Aboul Gheit (speaking to reporters in joint press
conference held with Secretary Condoleezza Rice - Cairo, Egypt - October
"Anyone who tries to accuse Egypt of cooperating with arms smugglers, I tell
him he's a big liar...If the way we deal with the arms smuggling is not good
enough for you, please, do the work yourselves," Mubarak said in excerpts
published in Yedioth Ahronoth on Thursday.

Regarding Israel's demand that Egypt halt arms smuggling from its territory
into Gaza as part of any cease-fire agreement, the ministers said Mubarak
denied that any such smuggling takes place. He insisted that the weapons
arrive not via tunnels from Sinai, but in barrels thrown overboard from
ships passing near Gaza's coast.
