Medics: Man dies in Gaza tunnel

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون
الله يرحم كل الشهداء

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — A young man was electrocuted on Sunday morning in a Rafah smuggling tunnel.

Medics told Ma’an that Bilal Islim, 25, died at 7.30 a.m. from an electric shock sustained while working in one of the tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border.

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

Under Israel’s crippling blockade, the tunnels have provided a lifeline for residents of the coastal enclave.


How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
