GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — A young Palestinian was killed and another injured on Sunday morning, after a tunnel under Gaza’s border with Egyptian city Rafah collapsed on them.

The Ambulance and Emergencies Committee in Gaza identified the dead man as Jihad Irbati.

Egyptian security officials said in early September they were cracking down on the complex of tunnels used by smugglers from the coastal strip, but smugglers say the trade is booming.

Medics say over 160 Palestinians have died in the network of underground tunnels since Israel imposed a siege on the Gaza Strip in 2006.
