Egypt army shoots, injures 3 Palestinians in Gaza tunnel


?Egyptian army forces shot and injured three Palestinians in a smuggling tunnel under the city of Rafah in southern Gaza on Thursday.

Egyptian soldiers entered the tunnel under the border city and opened fire at Palestinian workers, injuring three, locals said.

The victims were taken to hospital for treatment.

Earlier this week, Egypt detained three Palestinians after blowing up a tunnel under the shared border. The Palestinians were initially reported missing after the explosion.

Smuggling tunnels that pass beneath the Egyptian border have served as a lifeline to the outside world for Gaza's 1.8 million inhabitants since Israel imposed a crippling siege on the coastal enclave in 2007, which is supported by Egypt. more
