KFC Smuggling-Service of Gaza

Im Gaza-Streifen kann man sich als wohlhabender Palästinenser seit neuestem auch Zinger Sandwiches und Drumsticks durch die Schmugglertunnel bringen lassen. Kostet das dreifache und dauert drei Stunden, aber ey, wenn's halt unbedingt Hot Wings sein müssen! Ich kann das ziemlich gut verstehen.

For six years, Rafat Shororo longed for the taste of a KFC sandwich he had eaten in Egypt. This week, he got his finger lickin' fix at home in the Gaza Strip after a local delivery company managed to smuggle it from Egypt through underground tunnels.

The al-Yamama company advertises its unorthodox new fast-food smuggling service on Facebook. It gets tens of orders a week for KFC meals despite having to triple the price to 100 shekels ($30) to cover transportation and smuggling fees. The deliveries go from the fryers at the Al-Arish KFC joint 35 miles away to customers' doorsteps in about three hours.
