A member of the armed wing of the Palestinian terror group Hamas died Friday when a tunnel collapsed in the Gaza Strip near the Israeli border, Hamas and medical sources said.

The sources did not say why the tunnel, located in eastern Shejaiya in northern Gaza, collapsed.

A statement from izz ad-Dine al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of de facto Gaza rulers Hamas, said a member was killed in the collapse of “a resistance tunnel”…

    It’s the damn Israelis fault. If only they had supplied Hamas with more concrete and rebar this peace loving future savior of mankind would still be alive. (sarc)

      Yep, it’s always Israel’s fault… One just needs to think creatively to come up with a reason.

    Israel needs to hire a fracking crew. and use nearby sea water to fracture and collapse the tunnel;s
