Hamas militants blew a whole in the barrier separating Gaza from Egypt today:

Hamas militants blew a gaping hole in a concrete barrier on the Gaza Strip’s southern border, enabling Palestinians to continue surging into Egypt despite pledges to restore order.

Under pressure from Israel, Egyptian authorities set a new deadline for all Palestinians to return to the Gaza side after revealing they had uncovered a tunnel stashed with weapons on the border.

Hundreds of people continued to scramble across the divided border town of Rafah after witnesses said Hamas members detonated mines next to concrete slabs dividing Palestinian Rafah from Egypt, blowing a hole which people could clamber through.

A single Egyptian soldier looked on helplessly. Amid the mayhem, Hamas militants posed for pictures with a 10-year-old Egyptian girl.

Egypt announced it found an arms smuggling tunnel connecting Egypt to Gaza on Wednesday:

Egyptian border guards discovered the tunnel in the al-Duhniya area, 2 1/2 miles south of the Rafah crossing point, on Tuesday evening, a security official said.

The tunnel contained 38 firearms and three rocket-propelled grenades, the official added, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

The tunnel penetrated to the Palestinian side of the frontier, and Palestinian security forces seized the weapons Wednesday, the official said.

The good news is that Palestinian Leader, Mahmoud Abbas, said that he will restore order by 18:00 today.

Scratch that… The deadline came and went and scores of Palestinians are continuing to cross into Egypt.
