EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egypt's military closed two smuggling tunnels leading to Gaza on Monday, security officials said.

Egyptian soldiers arrested 10 suspected smugglers in Rafah and shut two tunnels used to smuggle goods to the Gaza Strip, Egyptian officials told Ma'an.

Families of the arrested smugglers staged a small demonstration against the arrests.

The tunnel network developed as a vital source of goods under Israel's blockade of the coastal strip and Egyptian restrictions on the official Rafah crossing point.

Work conditions in the network of underground tunnels are notoriously dangerous, with rights groups saying that at least 230 people have been killed in tunnel collapses.

EGYPT MUST PROTEST THE ISRAELI OCCUPATION OF Palestine.End the Israeli Occupation of Palestine & illegal collective punishment blockade of 1.7 million humans in Gaza! Black-marketeer tunnel-owners,on BOTH sides of the border life-line tunnels,are making huge profits from human suffering,just as some Jews did in the Warsaw Ghetto. END IT! Or is Egypt's M/B PROFITTING from Gazan pain still,too?END THE OCCUPATION,give Gazan's real jobs,wages,&DIGNITY,with NO NEED FOR TUNNELS! Period!

Mel #1: why palestinians always think that somebody should give them something - "real jobs, wages, dignity ets". No-one is obligated to give palestinians anything - they should work and earn everything, create businesses and jobs for themselves, trade with their neighbors, earn some money - just like all other people and countries. As long as palestinians feel that somebody owes them something, that somebody should give them something - they, palestinians, will have nothing.
