Egypt Strangling Gaza by Flooding Smuggling Tunnels

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood regime has been flooding Hamas smuggling tunnels for three days in a move that may be aimed at punishing Sinai terrorists who threaten Cairo’s authority but also may be a warning to Hamas of who is the boss.
Ironically, heavy rains last month forced Hamas to close the tunnels, but now Egypt is taking over where nature left off.
