RAFAH, (PIC)– Egyptian authorities blasted a tunnel on the borders with the Gaza Strip on Tuesday that was used to smuggle food and other goods into the besieged Strip.

Palestinian sources and locals in the Rafah border town said that they heard the explosion to the west of the city and that they saw smoke billowing from the targeted tunnel, but no casualties were reported.

Palestinians in the blockaded coastal enclave dug hundreds of tunnels along the Egypt-Gaza borders to smuggle all kinds of commodities and fuel that are in shortage in the Strip which has been under siege for the past five years.
