YERUSHALAYIM -

A tunnel caved in near the Egyptian border in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday night, killing a Hamas terrorist and leaving eight others missing, according to Palestinian media sources.

The incident occurred one week after another Hamas tunnel collapsed during a heavy rainfall, killing seven.

The man who died on Tuesday evening was identified as 23-year-old Khaider a-Zahar, a member of Hamas’s “military arm,” the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.
