This exclusive video shows one of the famous tunnels linking the Gaza Strip to Egypt. The underground passage begins...inside the wardrobe of a Rafah bedroom. This document was sent to us by one of our Observers there, who got it from an Egyptian police officer.
Destroying the tunnels that run between Egypt and Gaza is one of the main objectives of Israel's operation "Cast Lead". According to the Israeli Defence Force (IDF), all sorts of articles are smuggled through the Hamas-controlled tunnels, including the rockets that are then fired into Israeli territory.
Bassam Shakaa also sent us another video, which shows a man being machine gunned on the ground. According to the Egyptian police officer, the footage was shot with a mobile phone in a Gaza street. The killer was a Hamas militant, settling a score with a member of the Palestinian Authority. We decided not to show the video, due to its shocking content and the difficulties in verifying the information.
