Hamas is constructing a huge earthen wall along Gaza’s entire border with Egypt. The wall is intended to stop independent smugglers and Salafist infiltrators.

But the same wall will also allow Israel to easily control Hamas’ tunneling business. The absence of continual IAF strikes near the wall would indicate Israeli complacency in the arms smuggling, which is indeed a part of the mutual Israeli-Hamas understanding on reducing the scale of the fighting.
