Egypt Demolishes Five Tunnels in Sinai

Cairo — Egyptian border guards destroyed five tunnels in North Sinai's border city of Rafah, bringing the total number to 1664 demolished tunnels, the army spokesperson said on Monday.

Five Palestinians were arrested in an infiltration attempt to Egypt, he added in a statement on the army's official Facebook page.

The guards also thwarted the smuggling of 5400 "Tramadol" (pain killer) pills, and destroyed two SUV vehicles, which were loaded with 845 rifles.
