Now here's a story that doesn't fit the BBC narrative of Israel blockading Gaza and so won't be covered by the BBC

My campaign to get the BBC to acknowledge that Gaza has a land border with Egypt as well as Israel and therefore if Israel is blockading Gaza, so is Egypt has had the occasional victory. The most satisfying being detailed here.

The BBC's continued pushing of the narrative that Israel is blockading Gaza, that Israel controls entry to and exit from Gaza when in fact there is a long land border between Gaza and Egypt, means that such stories as the following are usually not reported on the BBC.

The Jerusalem Post reports that:
'Egyptian forces have flooded smuggling tunnels under the border with the Palestinian-ruled Gaza Strip in a campaign to shut them down, Egyptian and Palestinian officials said.'
Any interest Jeremy Bowen, Jon Donnison etc.?
