A Burrower Buried


A Palestinian worker died in one of the tunnels between Gaza Strip and the Egyptian Sinai desert on Sunday.
Palestinian sources said that the worker, in his twenties, was working in one of the tunnels when it collapsed.
Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have dug dozens of tunnels to smuggle into the besieged enclave badly needed life necessities.

And Ma'an adds

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 "besieged enclave" of Gaza does not need badly missiles, rockets, mortars, etc.
