At least 10 Islamic Jihad terrorists were injured when a terror tunnel leading into Israeli territory collapsed in Gaza late on Tuesday, Palestinian and Israeli media reported.
According to the reports, a few others were missing following the collapse of the tunnel in the Shuja’iyya neighborhood of Gaza City.
The incident is just the latest of many similar collapses of Gaza tunnels in recent months. On Saturday, a 22-year-old Hamas terrorist was killed when a tunnel collapsed in Gaza.
In mid-July, two members of the Islamic Jihad group were killed in two separate tunnel collapses.
And in early April,five diggers were killed in a tunnel collapse at the city of Rafah, located in southern Gaza on the border with the Sinai Peninsula.
Hamas has been busily reconstructing its terror tunnel network breaching into Israeli territory, and after one of the collapses, some media reports speculated that a secret Israeli weapon – and not heavy rains – was responsible for the cave-ins.
A senior Israeli security official recently warned that Hamas continues to dig 10 kilometers in tunnels leading into Israel per month.
