The Jerusalem Post reports: 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 (pictured). It described the collapse as a work accident in the Gaza tunnel.

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 Gaza tunnel collapses that claimed the lives of several Hamas men.
