Palestinians move supplies through tunnels at Rafah

Israel has warned of renewed military strikes on Gaza if tunnels used for smuggling in goods from Egypt are reopened by Palestinians.

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said the situation could not return to how it was before Israel's 22-day offensive in Gaza, which ended last Sunday.

But media reports say that some of the tunnels are already back in operation, with fuel being smuggled in.

Diplomats are continuing talks in Egypt aimed at finding a lasting truce.

Destroying the network of tunnels between the Gaza Strip and Egypt was one of Israel's main aims when its offensive began in late December.

    • Indeed, I suspect you're dead right. These tunnels are nothing more then logistical tails heading back to Iran.

  • Every truce has meant a rearming of hamas and more tunnels dug. The war will start again, and I sincerely hope it will not stop until it is finished. If this crap does not end soon it will bring more states into it, and it will just grow, which is exactly what hamas via Iran wants.

  • Obama said:

    "In the aftermath of the Gaza conflict, he emphasised his determination to work to help consolidate the ceasefire by establishing an effective anti-smuggling regime to prevent Hamas from rearming, and facilitating, in partnership with the Palestinian Authority, a major reconstruction effort.%u201D

  • they should walk the entire length of the border with a sonar device which penetrates the ground and detects tunnels. Then blow each tunnel up, causing it to collapse, as carefully as possible, to avoid collateral damage to nearby houses.
