The Egyptian army targeted on Sunday a number of tunnels on the Rafah border in the Sinai Peninsula which were used to smuggle fuel to Gaza.
Army sources said that 80 percent of all tunnels have been demolished, amounting to about 805 tunnels.
The sources added that bulldozers were used to remove several machines dedicated to pumping fuel into the Gaza Strip through the tunnels.
They noted that the army’s efforts to demolish all smuggling tunnels are ongoing.
