The bodies of two Hamas diggers who were buried alive in a Gaza tunnel collapse were finally pulled from the wreckage over the weekend.

Hamas searchers found the corpses Saturday evening in the area of Rafah, the city that sits on Gaza’s southern border with Egypt.


The tunnel in which the hapless diggers were working had snaked its way under the border from Gaza to Egypt.

The Egyptians have been flooding the tunnels to eliminate the smuggling and infiltration problems presented by Hamas and its allied terrorist groups in Gaza.

  1. To build the tunnels electric lights and electrical powered ventilation is required. The Israelis provide all of the electrical power for the Gaza Strip and the West Bank areas. The Israeli could send a high voltage serge through the electrical power lines feeding the Gaza Strip. This would burn up most of the light bulbs and the electrical motors powering the ventilation.
    It would destroy most of the lectrical appliances in the Gaza Strip also.

    An even easier way would be to just shut off electric power to the Gaza Strip. The Arabs do not pay their electric bills anyway,

  2. If the electrical powered lighting and ventilation is the case, Bruce, and the flooding became the problem, how come they are not electrocuted and the cables then would be shorted out, which would have informed the whole of the recipients of the same supply, therefore giving the information exactly where the problem is sourced. – or is that naiive?
