This Genocide Will Not Be Televised: Choking Off The Last Gaza Lifeline

Israel Gives Ultimatum to Tunnel Owners in Southern Gaza

"Thursday December 25, 2008 12:17 by Rami Almeghari - IMEMC&Agencies

Israel announced on Thursday an ultimatum for smuggling tunnels' owners on the Egypt-Gaza border lines.

Leaflets dropped by Israeli warplanes on the border lines read that all those working on tunnels must leave the place in 24 hours, before the Israeli air crafts destroy the tunnels.

This is the first time in the past few years that Israel has made such a declaration, as the tunnel trade on the border lines has flourished over the past 18 months, because Israel has closed all of Gaza's border crossings, only allowing a limited quanty of commodities through the border from time to time.
