A tunnel used by Palestinians to smuggle weapons from Egypt to the Gaza Strip collapsed on Thursday, burying several people inside, Palestinian and Israeli military officials said.
According to The AP, Israeli military sources said the tunnel collapsed while an unknown number of Palestinians were digging toward an Israeli outpost near Rafah in southern Gaza Strip.
Palestinian officials conveyed the tunnel collapsed following the heavy rains in the area overnight. They said five people, all from the same family, were trapped in the rubble. Israel's Army Radio said three Palestinians were wounded. (Albawaba.com)
