These Petards Are Made For Hoisting

The Palestinians have continued tunneling under the Gaza-Egypt border, presumably to smuggle arms across the border without attracting attention. They managed to literally blow that today, and the illicit weapons they smuggled into the tunnel apparently provided their undoing:

An explosion collapsed a tunnel under the Gaza-Egypt border early Friday, trapping five terrorists inside and killing at least one, Palestinians said.

The Aksa Martyrs' Brigades said the five were members. The group refused to say what they were doing.

The group said the explosion was not caused by an IAF air strike, after first blaming Israel.

They refused to say what they were doing in an illegal tunnel that inexplicably blew up? Why would they need to spell it out for anyone?
