This is the dramatic moment Palestinians tried to extinguish a huge fire which ripped through a smuggling tunnel in the Gaza Strip today.
The blaze, which happened in the town of Rafah on the border with Egypt, is believed to have been started accidentally.
The tunnels have been used to get goods into the Gaza strip since 2007 when the Israelis stepped up a blockade

What on earth a tanker has to do with tunnels I have no idea and if they can not distinguish between a "Tanker" and a "Tunnel" then I think they need to go back to school or at least buy a dictionary and look up the meanings of words before they use them.edit on 22/11/11 by thoughtsfull because: (no reason given)
