Egyptian security personnel also flooded tunnels that were found infiltrating beneath its border from Gaza.

As Jews around the world continue to beseech the One Above to continue the nurturing rains of winter in the Land of Israel, Mohammed Ashour al-Naj’ar, has found his rest after many hard hours living as a tunnel digger in Gaza.

The Izz a-Din al-Qassam military wing of Hamas announced Saturday al-Naj’ar, 31, was buried alive in a tunnel collapse due to weather conditions.


The Khan Younis resident added his body to those of numerous other victims who chose to uselessly sacrifice their lives to the terrorist organization.

The soft sands of Gaza are easy for diggers to tunnel through, but that same softness becomes a death trap when the moisture seeps in from the heavy rains of winter. It is then that the weight of the mud above transforms their work environment into a grave.

But no matter.

Regardless, Hamas forces the diggers to continue their work in both directions: creating a network of terrorist tunnels to snake under the borders to infiltrate Egypt as well as Israel.

In both cases it is clear when the tunnels are exposed by the IDF and Egyptian security teams that Hamas has stolen for its military the concrete that was to be used to rebuild Gaza infrastructure and homes for residents.

Instead, that and similar donated supplies are used to reconstruct its military infrastructure so Hamas can launch a new war against Israel. This time, Hamas may also be offering concrete support via the tunnels for Da’esh (ISIS) terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula bordering Gaza as well.

The concrete is being used primarily to shore up the tunnels that are more vulnerable to collapse due to bad weather, according to the Hebrew-language NRG website, particularly those closest to Egypt; because that is where the infrastructure is less secure.

Egyptian security personnel have dug a wide moat along that country’s border with Gaza, and filled the canal with water to create a commercial fish farm.

The wide swathe of water along the border effectively sealed off any penetration of that section of Egypt’s border, with or without tunnels. In addition, Egyptian security personnel routinely flood terrorist tunnels that are found to be infiltrating beneath its border with Gaza.

  1. Where are the BDS bastards who shouted the Israel stops construction materials for houses into, instead since its for funneling terror into israel it was stopped. Supposing the arguments BDS made are used to stab their near and dear ones. Their rhetoric will be a far cry from what they ignorantly and willfully support mass murder. Pathetic humans of the lowest kind.

  2. Good this rain is from the G-d of Abraham,Issac and Jacob.There's no fooling around with him.The more they continue to dig the more there continue to drawn,of coarse they.Like there buddies the Palestinians (Arabs) do not,value life.
    So let Hamas continue to dig and die.

  3. Rain and thunder are akways a blessing for the innocents whenever plots are devised against them. Praises be Unto Adonai Elohim. And these rats think that by shutting down my auto correction mode, they will appear credible??? Not even in Mohammed’s grave could they ever be credible!!!

  4. Psalm 44:3 "
    For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them." How encouraging! Keep praying for Israel!!!! Prepare to be amazed at God's s bstrong right arm!

  5. Muslims can't tell a lie. What? Quran says it's a mitzvah to lie? and to what? kill the Jews and Christians? and now their infesting Europe? Must be finally a Devine punishment for European cooperation with Nazis in eliminating their Jews while stealing all the Jewish assets.

  6. Ron Kall it was under pressure by the west who felt a rachmunus for the "poor palestinians" who were left out in no-man's land after the 6-day war – Don't you remember the signing of the treaty on the white-house lawn? – and yes, we the Jews were not, according to Gd allowed to give one inch of land away, hence all the problems today, added to by the stoppage of the war with gaza – Again Gd said, "if you don't kill your enemies outright, they will come back four-fold.." – now we see exactly what He meant.

  7. This tragedy could have been avoided had Hamas submitted their tunnel construction plans to the appropriate Israeli Planning Authority for review and approval. Perhaps the application fee is too high, but, in the long run, OSHA penalties are not cheap either.

  8. …God will always be on the side of His chosen people the Jews who worships the true God of heaven. God said: It shall come to pass in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that comes against Jerusalem [ the Jewish People ] Zechariah 12:9. of the Holy Bible of God , the Tanach. the Old Testament Bible.

  9. And thereby salinate the underground aquafer Israeli farmers rely on? Think again. It's easier to ID and mine the tunnels and give them the surprise of their misguided lives when the time is right. Nothing happens unless Allah wills it and in this case they are being set up for a fall. Inshaka-la-la-siss-BOOM-BANG!!!

  10. Roland Wilt …I'm sorry that you think that Israeli soldiers stopping terrorists from attacking innocent civilians is "killing people." I'm sure you say the same thing everytime you see a bank robbery on the news where the police shoot the gunmen holding innocents hostage and you say: "police should stop killing these innocent gunmen that did nothing wrong…they were just trying to earn some money, right?!?!"
