Pictures of Gazans exporting eggs to Egypt via tunnels

A new Hamas newspaper called Rafah News has pictures of Gazans smuggling thousands of eggs - out of Gaza to Egypt.

An article in a different Hamas newspaper gives details. A package of eggs in Gaza are 7 shekels/10 Egyptian pounds each, while they sell in Egypt by wholesalers for 15-17 pounds.

The smuggler claims that they manage to package the eggs so that less than 1% get smashed during the journey through the tunnels.

He also sells chickens to Egypt, while other tunnel operators are selling juice, candies and soap.
