Militant groups in the Gaza Strip have apparantly turned to online shopping sites such as AliExpress to stay stocked up on terror paraphernalia, at least according to Israel.

Israeli authorities have seized hundreds of packages en route to Gaza, which they say contain prohibited products intended for terrorist activity, including miniature electric drills, walkie talkies, binoculars, motherboards, inverters and optical cable cutters.

The Defense Ministry and COGAT, Israel’s military liaison agency with the Palestinian Authority, said in a joint statement that they suspect some of the products could have been intended to build improvised weapons.

Citing security concerns, Israel and Egypt maintain tight restrictions at their Gaza borders. Hamas, regarded by the West as a terrorist group, seized the enclave in f ighting in 2007 against forces loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Israeli border restrictions, including a nearly blanket ban on exports from Gaza, and three wars since 2008 have imposed severe economic hardship in the territory.

Since Hamas ceded Gaza's border crossings with Israel - the main gateway for commercial imports - to the Authority on Novem ber 1 under an Egyptian-brokered unity deal, many prices in the territory have dropped, as the Rafah crossing has allowed goods to come in from Egypt as well.
