Israel announced on Thursday a ultimatum for smuggling tunnels’ owners on the Egypt-Gaza border lines.




Leaflets dropped by Israeli warplanes on the border lines read that all those working on tunnels must leave the place in 24 hours, before the Israeli air crafts destroy the tunnels.


This is the first time in the past few years that Israel declares so, as the tunnels trade on the border lines has flourished over the past 18 months , with Israel closing all Gaza’s border crossings, allowing limited quantiies of commodities from time to time.




Something about this post is surreal, unreal


I have wondered if the blockade has been (at least in part) for seeing where the smuggling  is going on, either by agents or by satellite, moving enough goods to supply one and half million people should be observable, but it seems not! Maybe some blanket bombing is in store, or technology can somehow detect the tunnels.


I bet the human spirit will win.
