Reuters reported on Friday that the Rafah smuggling tunnels, pummeled by the IAF over 8 days, in an area described as resembling a moonscape, are already being rebuilt.

“As you can see there is complete destruction, the tunnels are all destroyed because of the missiles. We will rebuild them and bring in food, flour lentils and sugar and building material such as cement and metal so that the people can break the siege on Gaza,” Mohamad Omar told Reuters on Friday while his friends were busy clearing up their camp.

A Rafah tunnel that has been bombarded by the IAF will be re-dug this week.

The Rafah border crossing with Egypt, like the crossings to Israel remained closed to traffic most of the day Friday.

Local workmen said the IAF attacks destroyed more than two-thirds of the cross-border tunnels which are used to bring in cement, fuel, food, and the rockets and mortar shells used against Israeli civilian enclaves only a few miles away.

“We are trying to fix the tunnel in order to return to our normal life which we need the tunnel for work. It costs a lot but what can we do, we have to fix it. For example this tunnel of ours which has been hit it will cost no less that 40 thousand dollars to fix,” Mohamad Aladwan said.

According to Reuters, none of the tunnel workers interviewed said they had handled military materiel, and all of them said they were dedicated to bringing through only harmless consumer goods and medical supplies.

    المنحرف
    Messaoud Mohammed
    more insane people will live under insane conditions so as to breed more insanity and you all this “good nice news”. Birds of feather flock together.

  12. Yehuda Cohen says:

    US tax $$ are being used by the PA to grant monthly salaries to terrorists in Israeli prisons. In fact, the more Jews they have killed, the higher monthly salary they get.

  13. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Help to Egypt from the USA?
    For many years the USA has been awarding Egypt billions of dollars of American weapons. Then Obama kicked out Murbarak. Obama supported and still supports the Muslim Brotherhood of whom Murbarak outlawed. The MB wants to destroy Israel and Obama made Mosi (of the MB) the gaurantor of this cease fire which is like putting a fox that was born to kill chickens to be in charge of protecting chickens.

    So, what kind of help are you proposing that the USA gives to Egypt?

  14. I NEW IT, WHAT's NEW WITH THOSE SOB.

  15. Messaoud Mohammed says:

    AND YOURS

  16. Messaoud Mohammed says:

    I ask a question :

    Why the Jews do not have the same bitterness and rancour against Germans who slaughtered the Jews in the Holocaust?

  17. Keith David Reitman says:

    Thank you for asking a question in a polite fashion, without bitterness or rancor, Messaoud. I am interested to see how others may respond to your question. But I will ask you respectfully: What "bitterness or rancor" and toward whom, have you observed from ""the Jews"?
