Egypt is currently pondering the possibility to set up buffer zone on its border with Gaza Strip in order to thwart arms and drugs smugglers, Egypt's Al-Masri Al-Yawm paper said on Saturday.

Gaza Strip smuggling tunnels connect Egypt and the Gaza Strip, bypassing the Egypt-Gaza Strip barrier built by Israel along the international border established by the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty. The tunnels pass under the Philadelphi corridor an area specified in the Oslo accords as being under Israeli military control, in order to secure the border with Egypt.
