The Higher Committee for Medical and Emergency Services in Gaza identified the resident as Mohammad Al Daghma, 27.

Approximately 200 Palestinians died in similar accident since Israeli imposed the illegal siege on Gaza in 2006.

A number of Palestinians were killed when the army bombarded the tunnels while they were in them.

The siege left Gaza hospitals and medical centers without the needed medications and medical supplies.

Over 300 patients have died since the siege began due to a lack of essential medical equipment, and having been denied exit passes by the Israeli government to receive treatment outside of Gaza.
