Seven anti-tank missiles RΡG-7, ready bombs, grenades, pistols and two Kalashnikov rifles are part of the equipment, which was found in yet another revealed hideaway of the Greek terrorist organization "Revolutionary Fight". The Apartment-warehouse full of arming of the "revolutionaries" is only 30 square meters and is located in a residential neighbourhood on 8 Eginis street in Athens. The apartment was rented by Anastasios Grivokostopoulos - one of the fake names of terrorist Kostadinos Gournas. Police found the secret hideaway only meters away from the central court building of the capital, where the first terrorist attack by members of "Revolutionary Fight" took place on September 5, 2003. 

The studio was rented in 2004 and the owner is an elderly woman living in the province. Police found the name Anastasios Grivokostopoulos after finding the private car of Gournas. In the car police found a fake ID, which the terrorist had used for the lease of the apartment. Police found the false name in the records of the tax office, which lead them to the hideaway. 

All explosive materials were packed and specially prepared for use. To secure the perimeter, police evacuated all residents of the building and with the assistance of the military department for securing minefields, they took away the explosives from the building. Police claimed that the found anti-tank missiles RΡG-7 are the same type used in the attack on the U.S. Embassy on June 12, 2007. According to reliable sources police is seeking to find two MR5 rifles, which were stolen in the past five years and have been used in two attacks by "Revolutionary Fight". With one rifle was committed the murder of policeman Halarambos Amanatidis at the end of 2004 in the Athens neighbourhood Kifisia. The second MR5 was used against former President of the Supreme Court Romoul Kedikoglou, who also became a victim of the Greek terrorists. Police claim that if both rifles are found "Revolutionary Fight" will be destroyed. 

Police and the Agency for Combating Terrorism are studying collected physical evidence, fingerprints and DNA in order to discover other members of the terrorist organization.
