Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip reported that one resident was killed, on Tuesday evening, and another resident was injured in a tunnel collapse accident, near the Salah ad-Din Gate, south of Rafah, in the southern part of the coastal region.The two residents were in one of the tunnels when it collapsed. While medics and rescue teams that rushed to the scene managed to locate the two residents and moved them to hospital, one of them died of his wounds, while the second suffered moderate injuries.
In June, one resident was killed and another resident was injured when a siege-busting tunnel collapsed while they were working in it.
It is worth mentioning that more than 200 Palestinians have been killed in similar tunnel incidents, and more than 800 have been injured since 2006.
The Palestinians started digging tunnels and after Israel enforced its deadly siege on the coastal region.
The siege has left Gazan hospitals out of basic and specialized supplies and equipment, an issue that has led to the death of more than 400 patients, including infants and children.
