Israel drafting plans for moat to thwart arms smuggling from Egypt

Israel's military has been developing plans for halting the flow of weapons and insurgents from Egypt to the Gaza Strip.

One proposal is to construct a huge moat along the 14-kilometer Egypt-Gaza border. Officials said the moat would be built in stages, with the first portion to be located in the area of the arms smuggling tunnels along the divided city of Rafah.

Officials said the military believes that at least 30 arms smuggling tunnels connect Sinai to the Gaza Strip. They said Egypt, despite the deployment of 750 police commandos, has not made a dent in the smuggling.
