Egypt seizes smuggled iron in Gaza tunnel area

EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) – Egyptian military forces in Rafah raided the border area surrounding the Gaza Strip and seized control of four tunnels loaded with iron bound for the Gaza Strip.

Security sources told Ma’an that the forces received information about 80 tons of iron and raided the al-Hilwat area, finding four tunnels loaded with five trucks on their way to the Gaza Strip.

The suspected smugglers escaped through the tunnels, the sources said. The security forces destroyed the tunnels' entrances and confiscated the iron. They also imposed more restrictions in the area.
