Bulldozer runs over man near Rafah tunnels

May 11, 2011 1:06 P.M. (Updated: May 11, 2011 7:58 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was killed Wednesday when a bulldozer ran him over in the tunnels area of southern Gaza.

Locals said Muhammad Ramadan Sha’ban, 22, from Beit Lahiya, was sleeping when a bulldozer ran over him.

Medics said he died instantly, and police said the death in Rafah was ruled an accident.

The young tunnel worker’s body was taken to the Abu Yousef An-Najjar Hospital.

All commercial crossings into Gaza are closed except for the southernmost Kerem Shalom terminal, which remains strictly controlled by Israel under its terms of siege of the coastal enclave.

The tunnels beneath the Egypt-Gaza border provide a vital access point for goods that remain prohibited, such as medications and building materials.
