In VICELAND's new series Black Market: Dispatches, we expand our look into global underground economies to see how contraband moves across borders.

In the first episode, we explore the underground network of tunnels that connect the Gaza Strip to Israel and Egypt to see how goods and soldiers move in and out of the Palestinian territory. Gazans get around the economic blockade by using the rudimental tunnels to smuggle in items they need to survive, even as neighboring territories try to bomb and destroy them.

Watch the full first episode above and make sure to catch the show every Tuesday at 10 PM on VICELAND.
