Hamas fighter dies in accident during Gaza 'mission'

April 4, 2016 2:12 P.M. (Updated: April 4, 2016 7:53 P.M.)
GAZA (Ma'an) -- Hamas' military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, said Monday that one of its members had died in an accident during a "jihadi mission" in the northern Gaza Strip.

The brigades said in a statement that 24-year-old Musab Muhammad al-Sheikh, from Jabaliya in northern Gaza, was accidentally shot dead by a bullet from his own gun.

Further details on the circumstances of his death and the nature of the "mission" were not provided.

Al-Sheikh's funeral was scheduled for Monday at 12 p.m. in Jabaliya refugee camp.

Members of the al-Qassam Brigades are regularly killed during training exercises or in Gaza's notoriously dangerous tunnel networks in the north and south of the blockaded coastal enclave.
