Arab media report at least one man is dead and numerous others are missing in a terrorist tunnel collapse in Gaza.

Salah al-Astal Amid was identified as the man who was buried alive and died in the collapse, according to Arab sources.


It is not yet known how many Hamas operatives were hurt in the collapse, nor why the tunnel caved in on Monday.

A little more than a week ago, an Islamic Jihad terrorist died while helping to dig a tunnel which collapsed on him in Gaza near the Erez Crossing into Israel.

Seven other terrorists were trapped for hours in the collapsed tunnel, but eventually were rescued by fellow Islamic Jihad operatives.

  1. Keep those tunnels collapsing!! Even if it kills one by one!
    Imagine..Digging under ground like an animal then being crushed and suffocated, what a horrible death. You would think after so many horrible tunnel deaths, they would give it up! Does dying in a tunnel still qualify a guy for the 72 virgins?

  2. Isn't this hysterical? Some little boys were playing in
    the sand and OMG the tunnel just collapsed!
    Next we will make sand castles.
    WTF are these tunnels for??? To MURDER JEWS!!!
    How about, "we discovered these tunnels and declared
    Have we become so PC imbeciles that only AFTER they
    utilize the murdeous tunnels for their purpose will BiBi
    call a press conference?
    Arrest another solider…. that will inspire the moles.
