KFC only a tunnel away

22 May 2013

A delivery company is offering Gaza residents a chance to indulge in KFC. The underground tunnels that connect Egypt and Gaza are now being used to smuggle food from the fast food chain.

Customers of Al-Yamama, a delivery company in the Gaza City, will have to wait three hours and pay three times as much for the goods to be smuggled underground from al-Arish in Egypt, some 35 miles (56km) away.

The company posted a picture for the fast food on its website, and soon received more orders from the people in Gaza. Al-Yamama has made four deliveries of KFC food to Palestinians in Gaza over the last month.
