Egyptians dig ‘apartheid’ ditch

Those racist Egyptians are at it again as they dig a 14 Km. long apartheid trench along the border with Gaza.

The Egyptian army is digging a trench in northern Sinai along the border with Gaza in an effort to prevent smuggling, security sources said on Monday, as the government steps up activities to prevent militant attacks that often target security forces.

Egypt had already doubled to one kilometer (0.62 mile) the depth of a security buffer zone on its border with the Gaza Strip

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has described Islamist militant groups as an existential threat to Egypt, the most populous Arab country.  (I guess Israel should not protect themselves from that same threat?)

The U-shaped trench is two kilometers away from the border and will have a depth of 20 meters and a width of 10 meters.

Egypt has kept its Rafah closing with Gaza largely shut since 2013.

Cairo has accused Hamas of helping militants in Egypt’s Sinai desert, which borders Gaza, to attack its security forces. Hamas denies this.
