Dropping Like Flies: Tunnel #7 collapses, killing another Hamas terrorist

 

Unlike previous 6 tunnel collapses where fault was placed on Egypt or Israel, which made smugglers & terrorists alike worried about entering, Hamas has officially labeled the death of  Izzadin Al-Kassam Brigades member, “a work accident.”

 

A Gaza tunnel collapsed in Shujaiyyeh, in the eastern part of Gaza city on Monday, an area near the border with Israel, killing a Hamas operative who was inside.

Hamas’s military wing, the Izzadin Al-Kassam Brigades, named the operative as 36-year-old Al-Salam Al-Batniji. It described the collapse as a work accident.

Earlier this month, the Jerusalem Post, citing Palestinian sources, reported that Hamas operatives were afraid to enter underground tunnels in the Gaza Strip fearing they will collapse.

Some of the operatives digging the tunnels believe Israel was involved in at least some of the recent tunnel collapses that claimed the lives of several Hamas men.

In January and February, official reports describe collapses caused by recent storms and heavy rains. However, among Hamas and others, there are many who believe Israel is responsible.

A Hamas attack tunnel collapsed in the Gaza Strip in the Zeitoun area at the start of February.

On the previous day, Hamas officials confirmed the death of at least two of its operatives in a separate tunnel collapse. Eight others were reported missing after the underground passageway caved in, according to the Izzadin al-Kassam Brigades.

In the previous week, seven Hamas men were killed when a tunnel collapsed close to Gaza’s eastern border with Israel.

Noam Rotenberg and Noam Amir contributed to this report.

  1. This is clearly God’s hand – He Who always fulfills His promises, one of them being: “I will bring them back from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them back into their own land where they will be My people and I will be faithful and righteous to them as their God”. He promises not to abandon His people but to protect them. So, hamas and company, give up your foolish, childish tunnels, you will never win…!
    I rejoice in the collapse of tunnel – may more tunnels collapse and may more hamas creeps be buried there!
