JNS.org – Yet another tunnel dug by the Hamas terror group in Gaza has collapsed, with Palestinian media reporting Sunday that five members of Hamas’s “military wing” were trapped when a tunnel collapsed on them east of Gaza’s Zeitoun neighborhood.

Hamas cordoned off the scene and searched for the five operatives, whose condition was unknown. The incident follows several similar recent tunnel collapses. On Jan. 28, heavy rain caused a Hamas tunnel near the Israel-Gaza border to collapse, killing seven Hamas operatives. Three other Hamas operatives were killed in two additional tunnel collapses in early February.

During Operation Protective Edge in 2014, Israel initially destroyed Hamas’s network of attack tunnels running underground and into Israeli territory, but the Gaza-ruling Palestinian terror group has been working to rebuild the tunnels.
