Hamas Condemns Egypt for Flooding Tunnels


Hamas condemned Egypt on Sunday for having flooded smuggling tunnels between Gaza and Egypt. Hamas leaders claimed that the tunnels are the only means to cope with Israel’s “cruel siege” on Gaza.

All foods, medicines and consumer goods are allowed to enter Gaza via Israeli crossings. Only weapons and some dual-purpose goods are barred.
