Junk-food starved Gazans can now order Kentucky Fried Chicken to go thanks to a new smuggling service which brings takeout from Egypt via a network of underground tunnels.
Its not exactly fasttaking several hours to arrive, with the Palestinian delivery company behind it charging hefty prices to cover the cost of fuel and transport.
Tight restrictions on Gazans entering Egypt mean those with a craving for chicken cooked to Colonels Secret Recipe cannot just pop over the border and pick up a bucket.
Instead, some residents seem quite happy to shell out ₪130 (£23; $35) for just 20 pieces of fried chickendouble what it costs in El-Arish.

Better hope Bloomberg and Moochelle don’t hear about this!!!!
They sure can afford to pay a lot more for chicken than I can.
I can’t afford the regular prices right now.
Maybe you need to get the UN to give you million$ of OPM.
If they can afford to shell out thirty-five bucks for a bucket of chicken then the global pablum-pukers need to stop whining about how tough they have it.
They’d have a KFC on every corner in Gaza if they’d stop blowing stuff up and killing everyone who isn’t anti-Israeli enough.
Can’t wait til the craving for Wienerschnitzel shows up
My local KFC here serves up nothing but pieces of greasy cartilage with skin hanging off it. Never again.
Yes, but is it still warm when the customer receives it?
For a while I was calling them Kentucky Fried Chick because the chicken pieces kept getting smaller and smaller. If they took it any further I expected to get an egg fried in their secret herbs and spices.
Yeah, what I was thinking too. Need that free ‘palestinian’ cash.
Looks like it’s working for them real well.
And there will be no large sodas with that chicken!
“South Park” did an episode like this.
i scrolled to see if someone put that in. I love that episode.
The owner of KFC closed shop( many shops ) where I live maybe a year ago can’t remember , but I do remember KFC was terrible
Ours too. And they will charge you over $20 for a bucket ‘family meal’. Extra for every piece of real (white meat) chicken you add.
I quit KFC long ago. They are expensive. I have switched to El Pollo Loco which is cheaper and has much better meals anyway.
Righteous plan. KFC’s worth the smuggle.
There is a KFC right across the street from our local Chick-Filet-A. CFA always has a line at their double lane drive thru and their parking lot is full, regardless of the time of the day. Rarely ever see anyone in line at the KFC or more than 2-3 cars in their parking lot.
But it is peach shake time at CFA. That may account for some of it. Local manager said they have run out of the peach several times already this month and that demand is about twice what it was last year.
Colonel Lingus - the chicken that takes a lickin’ SNL
The Colonel gave me food poisoning twice during the Summer of ‘78. Once here in Pittsburgh, once in the People’s Republic of Maryland. KFC has not touched my lips since.
the “ No Peace “ Bucket
Hard for KFC to keep pressure cookers in their Gaza shops because the terrorists keep taking them for ordinance making
