Cuomo Gaza Show Tunnel
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was shown a tunnel allegedly built to attack
Israel from Gaza. The tunnel shown in photos is considerably more sophisticated
and commodious than most Gaza tunnels published. It is constructed of
cast-in-place concrete, smooth-faced, crisply articulated with sleeves for
conduits and stairs for access. These polished characteristics are not shown
for other tunnels, which are smaller, constructed of rough precast concrete
or stabilized soil and vertical access shafts.
Why there would be stairs to the tunnel on the Israel side (Cuomo did not
go to Gaza) is bewildering. Perhaps a convenient portal was constructed by
Israel for showing to media and VIPs.
