Gaza tunnels used to export goods

The network of tunnels in Gaza, long used to import life-saving goods, are being repurposed to export material to Egypt.

     

    It is an industry working in reverse. Tunnels in Gaza are now being used to export goods out of the besieged strip.

    The smuggling industry has been in decline ever since Israel loosened its trade blockade on Gaza.

    Now tunnel operators are finding new ways of making money, as Nadim Baba reports.
