Israel’s Discovery is Egypt’s Embarrassment

The IDF announced Wednesday evening that it has gained full operational control over the crucial strip between Rafah in the Gaza Strip and Egypt known as the Philadelphi Corridor.

Chief Spokesperson Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari called it “Hamas’ oxygen pipeline” due to some 20 tunnels he said the army has found to date that cross the border into the Sinai desert, enabling the “regular” smuggling of weaponry into Gaza.

In Israeli testimony to the International Court of Justice, the number of tunnels crossing into Egypt was stated as being much higher.

The tunnels’ discovery is embarrassing for Egypt, and its state media was quick to reject the claim.

Yet, another terrorist underground infrastructure has been discovered by the IDF and is being dismantled. An arsenal of grenades, automatic rifles, explosive devices, and anti-tank missiles were found, which as we know, was stored there for the sole purpose of destroying Israel. To the foes of Israel: what was the reason you didn’t want Israel to go into Rafah? Do tell. We can’t wait to hear your answer.
