You destroy our "panya" tunnels, we rebuild them!

Unlike the bushy "panya" routes used by smugglers among borders in East Africa, such routes between the Gaza and Egypt  are well constructed.  They are used mainly by Palestinian  smugglers, as these  driving sheep through one smuggling tunnel between the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip and Egypt in the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah on April 2, 2013. 

And as the Egyptian army  destroy  the routes, commonly known as "Gaza smuggling tunnels" following orders of the country's high court, the smugglers  are always busy rebuilding them. It seems if Kenya has Restore and Build Kenya( RBK) political party,  Palestinians have "Restore and Build Tunnels (RBT)!"  (Text: Stephen Mburu. Photos: Xinhua)
