Egypt destroys 10 Gaza smuggling tunnels

Jan. 13, 2014 1:34 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 14, 2014 12:11 P.M.)
CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Egyptian security forces demolished 10 smuggling tunnels under the shared border with Gaza on Sunday, Egyptian security officials said.

The tunnels were located in the city of Rafah.

Egypt's army, which ousted the Muslim Brotherhood's Morsi in a July coup, has destroyed dozens of tunnels used by Hamas to bring crucial supplies into the blockaded Strip.

The tunnels have been a lifeline for the flow of food, clothing, building materials and fuel into the impoverished territory, which Israel has blockaded since 2006.

Egyptian officials said last September that more than 90 percent of the smuggling tunnels with Gaza have been destroyed.
