Tunnels being rebuilt...
And, just what will the international community do???
Hundreds of Palestinians came to the Gaza Strip's border with Egypt Thursday to try to repair smuggling tunnels bombed by Israel during a 22-day offensive and restore a commercial lifeline to the Hamas-ruled territory.
Residents along the border, where some Palestinians own tunnels and run them as businesses, said shipments of fuel and kerosene stoves had already been moving through the several dozen tunnels, out of hundreds, that were still functioning.
Tunnel-owner Mohammed said he and three partners had paid $40,000 to build their supply line.
"Soon it will be operational, I will not bring drugs or weapons, I plan to use it to bring in what people need most -- food and fuel, and that is very profitable," he said.
