2 workers trapped in Gaza tunnel collapse
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two workers were trapped in a Gaza smuggling tunnel on Friday as heavy rain caused several underground passages to collapse, civil defense crews said.Muhammad al-Maydneh, spokesman for civil defense crews in Gaza, told Ma'an that the Palestinian side is communicating with Egypt in order to save the two workers.
"Mahmoud! Can you hear me?"
"What he say?"
"He said, "Mmmmmmmmph!"
An Egyptian security official told Ma'an on Thursday that many of the tunnels under Gaza's border with Egypt are flooded or collapsed, after 3 days of heavy rainfall.
Lousy Zionist rain!
Earlier Friday, three workers trapped in the flooded tunnels were rescued by civil defense crews, al-Maydneh said.
Could they see their shadows when they got out?
Emergency services in the Gaza Strip are working around the clock to cope with the stormy weather.
Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky
