Israel's current offensive to the Philadelphi corridor adjacent to Egypt keeps finding tunnels.
Israeli Army Radio reported on Tuesday morning that "The IDF has so far located more than 10 smuggling tunnels along the Philadelphi axis, which cross from the Gaza Strip to Egypt. Some were destroyed, the IDF is working to destroy the rest."

Times of Israel's military correspondent Emanuel Fabian adds more today:

The Israeli military says it has established "operational control" over the entire so-called Philadelphi Corridor — which runs for a total of 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) all along the Gaza-Egypt border.

IDF troops are physically located in most of the corridor. There is a small section near the coast where ground forces are not present, but the IDF says it controls the area with surveillance and firepower.

Along the corridor, adjacent to Rafah, the IDF has located so far some 20 tunnels that cross into Egypt. Hamas has been known to use such tunnels to smuggle weapons into Gaza.

The IDF believes Hamas can now no longer smuggle in weapons from Egypt, as the military controls the area.

Some of the tunnels were already known to the IDF, and others were discovered for the first time. Some have already been demolished, and Israel has also been updating Egypt on the developments.

Another 82 tunnel shafts have been located in the Philadelphi Corridor area, according to the military.

Dozens of rocket launchers were also discovered along the corridor, some only a dozen meters from the Egypt border. The IDF believes Hamas positioned the rocket launchers along the corridor in an attempt to prevent Israel from striking them, thinking the military would fear overshooting into Egypt.
It sure sounds like cash-strapped Egypt has been complicit in the smuggling. 

After all, they had cleared out the area in 2014, claiming to have destroyed thousands of smuggling tunnels. But Hamas' supply of weapons and ammunition during the war has appeared inexhaustible - Gaza might be running out of food, water and medicine, but it isn't running out of rockets, mortars or bullets.

The impression I get is that the media only knows about 20% of what is going on and only reporting on 20% of what they know.  There is a lot happening that we cannot even guess. But in the absence of information, the vacuum is being filled up with anti-Israel lies.
