GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Islamic Jihad's military wing, the al-Quds Brigades, said that one of its members died Monday night in an accident during a "jihadi mission" in the Gaza Strip.

The brigades said in a statement that Samid Salah Hajjaj, from Gaza City's Shujaiyya neighborhood, was killed "accidentally" during the mission, without provided further details on the incident that lead to his death.

Hajjaj's body was taken to al-Shifa Medical Complex in Gaza City. His funeral is scheduled to be held after the midday prayer Tuesday.

Members of the the al-Quds Brigades, as well as members of Hamas' military wing 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.
