GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was killed when a tunnel under Gaza's border with Egypt collapsed on Sunday morning, rescue services said.

Ali al-Fadi, 20, died immediately and three others were wounded when the tunnel partially caved in near Rafah, south Gaza, civil defense spokesman Muhammad al-Maathneh said.

He said two tunnel workers who went missing in another tunnel collapse on Thursday are still missing. On Saturday, one Palestinian was man was pulled out alive from the rubble.

An Egyptian official said this week that many of the tunnels under Gaza's border with Egypt have flooded or collapsed due to heavy rainfall.

The tunnel network developed as a vital source of goods under Israel's blockade of the coastal strip and Egyptian restrictions on the official Rafah crossing point.
