Palestinians Rescued From Gazan Tunnel

Palestinians rescued from Gazan tunnel | Press TV

Three Palestinians have been rescued after spending five days under the rubble of a tunnel in Rafah which was targeted by Israeli aircraft.

The tunnel which links the Gaza Strip to Egypt was hit by Israeli warplanes on Tuesday, and the three had to struggle to survive until Saturday when they were saved by Egyptian rescue workers.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, which has been under a crippling Israeli blockade for almost two years, use the tunnels -- also known as Gaza feeding tubes -- to import food, medical and vital supplies into the enclave.

In addition to the blockade, Israel launched a three-week war against the Gaza population in late 2008 and early 2009, killing 1,330 Palestinians and inflicting at least USD 1.6b in damages to the infrastructure and facilities along with residential buildings.
