    Rafah - Gaza's Swiss Cheese - Tunnel Smuggling A Profitable

    Since pulling out of the Gaza Strip in September 2005, Israel continues to monitor the situation along the Gaza border but is unable to prevent the massive network of tunnels from sprouting up along the narrow Gaza-Egypt border, used to smuggle terrorists, explosives and weapons as well as drugs and other goods into Gaza. Egypt powerless to prevent the tunnel smuggling  has perhaps realized a little too late that it should have taken harsher action earlier. In recent weeks US troops worked together with Egyptian forces and using state of the art technology uncovered and destroyed 42 smuggling tunnels along the 14 kilometer border with Egypt. 10/06/08
