Russia will deliver 50 armored personal carriers to the Palestinian authority via Jordan in the near future, the Ria Novosti news agency reported on Thursday.
"In the coming days, 50 armored personnel carriers will be delivered to Jordan and then will be handed over to Palestinian security forces in the West Bank," Andrei Nesterenko, a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

Now, these are not exactly Apache helicopters, but still, if a blockade is worth anything at all, these would not get through, you’d think.
