Palestinians still try to defy the blockade

EXCLUSIVE PICTURES

Palestinians continue to work in the tunnels on the Rafah border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip. Essential goods, food, drink and medical supplies continue to be tranported in to ease the pressure of the blockade on everyday life in the Strip.
 
Work continues in perilious conditions, where workers are constantly exposed to the threat of Egyptian officials gassing the tunnels or Israeli occupying forces blanket bombing and destroying the tunnels. Last week 6 Palestinian youths were killed after the Aalip cylinder exploded inside the tunnel in which they were working.


Crossings on the Occupiers’ side remain closed. The Rafah border has been opened in recent days in response to the horrific flottila massacre of humanitarian aid workers by Israeli armed forces.
