Palestinian Smuggling Tunnels Back in Operation

It’s business as usual for Palestinian smugglers (but with fewer tunnels) now that the IDF has left Gaza: Gaza Strip smuggling tunnels operating despite IDF offensive

Smuggling into Gaza from Egypt is underway again, only days after the end of the IDF operation against Hamas.

AP Television News footage showed Palestinian smugglers Wednesday filling a fuel truck with petrol that came through a cross-border tunnel from Egypt. The footage also shows workers busy clearing blocked tunnels and bulldozers carrying out other repairs.

One of the stated goals of the IDF offensive was to stop the smuggling through the hundreds of tunnels under the border. The goods coming through have included a steady flow of rockets and other weapons.

Israel has said eighty percent of the smuggling tunnels were destroyed in bombing raids during the IDF’s Operation Cast Lead.
