Palestinian security forces discovered two underground tunnels along the Gaza Strip border with Egypt on Tuesday that they suspect were dug to smuggle weapons and other contraband. One of the tunnels, dug 25 meters underground, reached Egypt. Another was under construction and had not yet crossed the border, security officials said. Security forces prepared to seal both tunnels later in the day. They said they suspected the tunnels were dug for criminal purposes, not militant activity, but noted their investigation was still in a preliminary stage.
