KFC smuggled into Gaza through tunnels from Egypt
Gazans with a taste for the Colonel’s secret recipe can now order a KFC – which is smuggled into the territory via tunnels.
It cannot quite be described as fast food with deliveries from neighbouring Egypt 30 miles away taking up to four hours.
But despite prices of $27 for a 12-piece bucket of chicken, the entrepreneur behind the Palestinian delivery company insists business is brisk.
‘It’s our right to enjoy that taste the other people all over the world enjoy,’ Khalil Efrangi, 31, told the New York Times.
Tight border restrictions around Gaza – a tiny, impoverished coastal strip – mean residents who crave chicken cooked to Colonel Sanders’s secret recipe cannot just hop over to Egypt or Israel.
Instead it is transported through tunnels dug under the border with Egypt.
Many Palestinians have tasted KFC on travels abroad but no international fast-food chains operate in the strip.
