EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egyptian authorities deported ten Palestinians to the Gaza Strip on Thursday evening after they were found to have entered the country illegally, security officials told Ma'an.
The Palestinians were accused of entering Egypt's Sinai peninsula through tunnels under the Gaza border. Egypt has put their names on a blacklist to prevent them re-entering Egypt, the officials said.
