Weather causes collapse of Rafah smuggling tunnels

Published: 01.14.13, 13:35 / Israel News

The Palestinian border directorate in the Gaza Strip announced that the Rafah smuggling tunnels will be closed until further notice. The decision comes in light of the collapse of portions of the tunnel as a result of the stormy weather last week.


Over the past few days, searches have been conducted in the vicinity of the tunnels after six operatives residing in the collapsed tunnel went missing. On Sunday one Palestinian was killed and three others were evacuated as a result of the tunnel's collapse. (Elior Levy)
