Man electrocuted in Gaza tunnel

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A man died on Monday after being electrocuted in a smuggling tunnel under the Gaza-Egypt border, civil defense crews said.

Muntaser Muhammad Hussein al-Malahi, 20, was taken to Abu Yousef hospital but pronounced dead shortly after, civil defense officials told Ma'an.

In late October, three men were killed when a smuggling tunnel collapsed.

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

The tunnels have been used to import anything from food to construction materials, fuel and cars, and militants have also used them to import munitions used to attack Israel, which has targeted some of the tunnels with air strikes.
