Egypt introduces life in jail as penalty for tunnelling

The sound of crickets, tumbleweed rolling by.. Far away a raven calls. The sound of silence as the oh so committed to gaza international community ignores these extremely harsh measures whilst decrying to high heaven the legitimate self defense of Israel against same tunnels….

Hypocrisy exemplified. You’ve lost all credibility if even you had any.

An amendment to the Egyptian penal code imposing life in jail for builders or users of cross-border tunnels has been ordered by presidential decree. The penalty also applies to people with knowledge of tunnels who fail to report them to the authorities. The Egyptian government was authorized to seize buildings at the top of tunnels and any equipment for digging them. Cairo hopes to deter the building of tunnels running between the Gaza Strip and Sinai which are used for the transfer of illegal arms, equipment and terrorist manpower.
