Sisi régime punishing Gaza again

Egyptian authorities have started to dig a new tunnel in the Sinai Peninsula along the border with the Gaza Strip. The tunnel is intended to monitor the smuggling tunnels between Egypt and Gaza. These tunnels are Gaza’s lifeline – but the Sisi government  claims that they are a threat to its security. The tunnel is expected to be dug 2km from the actual border; it will be 20m underground and 10m wide.
