The Spanish National
Police has released pictures and video of an arsenal of war seized
in January in the Spanish provinces of Bizkaia, Girona and
Cantabria, Spain during operation ‘Portu’, supported by Europol.
Over 10 000 assault rifles, anti-aerial machine guns, 400 shells,
grenades, pistols, revolvers and parts to reactivate weapons, were
seized. Most of the firearms were
acquired legally as deactivated firearms but were later reactivated
in a workshop also discovered during the operation. In a "nofollow" href=
, Spanish National Police said that
“Due to their characteristics, their caliber and their readiness
for reactivation, the seized weapons had an easy journey in the
black market and posed a significant risk of being acquired by
organized crime groups and terrorists.” The investigation found
that the five arms dealers who have been arrested were using a
sports shop as a front and were selling firearms in Spain, France,
and Belgium using forged reactivation permits. Operation
Portu was started after the terrorist attack on the Jewish
Museum of Brussels in May, 2014. CDN -
