Gazans smuggling in Chinese cars through tunnels
Hundreds of new Chinese cars made by Geely, JAC and Chery that are assembled in Egypt have reached Gaza in recent months.
The Chinese journalist interviewed one of the importers who said that over 400 cars had been imported in three months. The importer said, "New dual drive Chinese cars are cheaper in Gaza than 2008 Korean made models. These cars are spacious and very passenger friendly."
The article did not explain how the cars reached Gaza when taking into account that all land border terminals are closed. But sources in the vehicle sector believe that the cars are driven to Gaza through "super tunnels" large enough for the assembled vehicles to travel through.
