Medics: Man killed in Gaza tunnel collapse

Dec. 2, 2012 3:52 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 3, 2012 8:21 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A man was killed on Sunday when a smuggling tunnel collapsed under the Egypt-Gaza border, medics said.

The body of Noman Qudaih, 38, was recovered from a tunnel near the Gazan side of Rafah city, medical sources told Ma'an. His body was transferred to the al-Najjar hospital in Rafah.

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 tightened its siege on the Gaza Strip in 2007.

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.
