Gaza's Hamas rulers have closed hundreds of tunnels running under the territory's border with Egypt due to health concerns over some smuggled items, an official said. The tunnels have been a vital lifeline for the flow of goods and fuel into the impoverished territory, which Israel has blockaded since 2006.
