With Tunnels Being Destroyed, Gaza Returns to Smuggling by Sea – Yaakov Lappin
(dailyalert.org, Nov. 14, 2014)

In recent months, the Israel Navy has intercepted a number of attempts by Gazan terrorists to smuggle in weapons by sea, a senior navy source said Thursday. The attempts involve Palestinian fishing boats that sail to the Egyptian coast, load cargo, and return to Gaza. “There has been an increase in these attempts in light of strict Egyptian enforcement against smuggling on the ground in Sinai,” the source said. “This has made sea channels more attractive.”  (Jerusalem Post)
