Informed sources {in Sinai} disclosed that the smuggling of Egyptian goods, especially cigarettes, through tunnels into the Gaza Strip is facing enormous hurdles. This is due to the imposition, by ISIS in Sinai, of harsh limitations, including cutting off roads to trucks carrying goods.
The same sources confirmed that members of the Jihadist organization recently told tunnel owners to stop smuggling certain goods into the Gaza Strip, especially cigarettes. They also threatened to harm anyone disobeying their orders.

Some sources claimed that ISIS in Sinai recently confiscated cigarettes and destroyed them. Meanwhile, ISIS militants have started pursuing trucks headed for the Palestinian town of Rafah, forcing drivers to take a detour and use bumpy roads.
