Another Gaza worker killed in smuggling tunnel collapse
A Palestinian worker was killed and another injured when an underground smuggling tunnel underneath the Gaza Strip's southern borders with Egypt collapsed, medical sources said on Saturday, Xinhua informed.
The medics said that Ramadan Abu Ermana, 32, died in the accident and another worker was injured after the tunnel collapsed.
The tunnel's cave-in was natural and caused the suffocation of the workers, according to medics at Abu Yousef al-Najjar in the town of Rafah, who added that the injured worker's condition is unstable.
Natural? A man-made structure failing is natural? Only in Palestine.
The smuggling business flourished when Israel imposed a closure on Gaza in June 2007, but declined after Israel eased the sanctions in 2010. Hundreds of Palestinians have been killed while working in the tunnels.
If they would just stop killing Jews, they could have a free and open border. But no! Some things are more important in life.
Sobhi Radwan, Rafah mayor, told Xinhua that more than 80 percent of the underground tunnels had completely stopped operating following the intensifying of Egyptian security measures after the attack in Sinai on Aug. 5, during which 16 Egyptian soldiers were killed and seven others wounded.
Egyptians putting the screws on, eh? Good for them. It's about time, it only took Islamists attacking Egyptians for this to happen. Killing Jews was OK though.
