A terrorist with the Islamic Jihad terror organization in Gaza died after his terror tunnel collapsed on him today, according to Arab sources on Social Media.
Seven other Islamic Jihad members in the tunnel were saved in a rescue operation that took 3 hours.
The dead Gazan man was identified as Ibrahim Al-Masri (28) from Islamic Jihad’s Al-Quds Brigade.
According to Israel’s Galei Tzahal radio, the terror tunnel was located near the Erez border crossing, which is at the northern end of Gaza.
This is the first time that it’s been publicized that an Islamic Jihad tunnel collapsed.
As an aside, the last name “al-Masri” indicates that the Gaza man’s family had originally emigrated from Egypt.
