She said that, currently, "Israel is prepared to assist with the resolution of the crisis, but for the moment this is largely devoid of any action". What is particularly important, according to Georgieva, is for Israel to come up with a coherent and exact list of items which are/are not allowed in terms of ...
control of the Philadelphi corridor from the Gaza Strip side fell to the Hamas administration. In late 2009 Egypt commenced construction of an underground barrier with the aim of blocking existing tunnels and making it more difficult to create new ones, because they would have to be deeper.

Hamas Finds Gaza Tunnels' $500 Million Loss Worse Than Madoff ...
Oct. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Investment opportunities are rare in the Gaza Strip. So when Nabila Ghabin saw one last year, she pawned her car and jewelry and put $12,000 into a network of tunnels that brought in supplies smuggled from Egypt. She was one of about 4,000 Gazans who gave cash to middlemen and tunnel operators in 2008 as Israel blocked the overland passage of goods. Then Israeli warplanes bombed the tunnels before and during the Dec. 27 to Jan. 18 Gaza offensive and the investments collapsed. Now investors, who lost as much as $500 million, want their money back from Hamas, which runs Gaza. Hamas Economics Minister Ziad Zaza industry trends, business articles and survey research
Mavi Marmara, Rafah, Egypt's Steel Wall
The Egyptian government's building of a steel wall underneath the Egyptian-Gazan border could lead to change, Tally Helfont writes for FPRI. By Tally Helfont for FPRI The Gaza Strip has represented a potentially strategic threat on both the local and regional levels for the past several years. During this time, various steps have been taken by Israel, Egypt, the United States, and the European Union to try to mitigate the considerable challenge posed by Gaza, though with very limited success.

Egypt: basis to move to direct peace talks lacking
CAIRO — Egypt says more work needs to be done to bridge the gap between Israel and the Palestinians before they can move to direct peace talks. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met separately with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo Sunday. None of them spoke to the press afterward. But Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit told reporters the basis to move from indirect to direct talks is still "lacking." Abbas has said he won't negotiate directly with Netanyahu unless Israel agrees to recognize its 1967 frontier as a basis for drawing the borders ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

"Every problem has a solution. The Egyptian steel barrier was a problem but we found a solution," says Mohammed, a grimy-faced Gazan tunnel digger who didn't want to give his real name. Mohammed, covered in dust and dirt, is in the process of digging a 750m (2,460ft) smuggling tunnel from Gaza into Egypt. He says he's been digging it for 18 months. As he hauls up a plastic container of sand with an electric winch from the metre-wide tunnel shaft, he says the new underground Egyptian barrier aimed at stopping smuggling is a "joke." "We just cut through it using high-powered oxygen fuelled blow torches," he says. The ...

Should Hamas really order Gaza smuggling tunnels to stay shut?
Sinai, Egypt (AHN) - Hamas has ordered smuggling tunnels between Gaza and Egypt to be shut down indefinitely. Operators currently man a honeycomb of tunnels that criss-cross between Gaza and Egypt. The move was prompted by a warning issued Tuesday regarding a terror cell operating in the Sinai Peninsula. According to published reports, Palestinian smuggles and workers said Hamas security forces ordered them to evacuate and close the tunnels behind them under Gaza's southern border with Egypt out of fear of Israeli bombing. The tunnel smuggling system is believed to move a variety of products into the Gaza region. More than ...
