Tunnel disasters continue in Gaza; 7 injured overnight

July 29, 2009 9:10 A.M. (Updated: July 30, 2009 5:50 P.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – Gaza tunnel disasters continued on Tuesday night as two more collapsed injuring seven Palestinians in the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah, Palestinian medical sources at Abu Yousif An-Najjar Hospital confirmed.

A tunnel collapse on Monday killed seven, while four are still thought to be missing beneath the sand. The last body recovered was that of 24-year-old Ayman Abu Samak whose body was pulled from the debris on Tuesday.

Official de facto government statistics say 110 have died in tunnel accidents over the last three years.

Smugglers maintain a vast network of tunnels under the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt. The tunnels are used to import goods made scarce by an Israeli blockade of the territory.
