The hidden Egyptian blocakade of Gaza

The BBC finally manage to acknowledge that Egypt is blockading Gaza as well as Israel. Admittedly you to have to read to the very end of this piece about the discovery of a Hamas terror tunnel before you find:
'Egypt, which has its own blockade of Gaza, has recently attempted to close off the network of tunnels used to smuggle goods beneath the border.'
 What the BBC manage not to directly report is that per the Jerusalem Post:
'The tunnel was constructed using approximately 24,000 Israeli concrete slabs which the IDF had permitted into Gaza to ease the crisis in the civilian construction sector...'
Remember that the next time the BBC or some bleeding heart pro-Palestinian  anti-Israel group whine about Israel not allowing construction materials into Gaza.
