Egypt destroys 3 more Sinai-Gaza tunnels

The Egyptian military says it destroyed three tunnels from Gaza into Sinai and destroyed captured motorcycles that were used by Islamist groups to attack Egyptian military posts in the peninsula.

According to Israel Radio, 11 operatives were killed in northern Sinai in a firefight yesterday with Egyptian forces.

Egypt has destroyed hundreds of tunnels leading from Gaza into Egypt, a move that led to drastic economic pressure on the Strip’s Hamas rulers and is thought by many analysts to be a key cause of Hamas’s decision to begin the latest round of fighting with Israel.
