GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Fire fighters on Sunday controlled a huge fire inside a smuggling tunnel under the border with Egypt in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, civil defense sources said.

Deputy director of Rafah civil defense services Ali Tantawi told Ma'an that fire fighters were notified of a fire in a tunnel south of the Salah al-Din Route.

He reported that it took firefighters "only ten minutes to control the fire," and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire was not clear.

Apparently, there are still some tunnels operating under the border between Gaza and Egypt. It is very disturbing - MAAN should send that information about fire in the tunnel to Egypt border authorities, so they can discover and shut down remaining smuggling terrorist tunnels.
