Tunnel collapse kills Islamic Jihad operative in Gaza
Latest tunnel collapse comes 9 days after another tunnel caved in on the terrorist group’s operatives in the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun.
A tunnel collapsed on five Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) tunnel operatives late Monday night in the south Gazan town of Khan Younis, leaving one dead, two wounded, and two additional missing, according to Saraya al-Quds, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
“One of our fighters in the Khan Younis Brigade rose to heaven as a martyr Monday night while carrying out preparatory work,” a statement published on its website said.
The statement identified the deceased tunnel worker as 28-year-old Salah Mohammed al-Astal, who succumbed to his wounds in transport to the hospital.
“We emphasize that the blood of the martyrs will remain an illuminating lamp for our fighters on the path of might and dignity,” the statement added.
