Another Hamas-built tunnel collapsed underneath the Gaza City quarter of Shujaiya, the Islamist group’s military wing announced on Monday.

The tunnel’s collapse, which is officially being labeled “a work accident,” claimed the life of Abdel Salam Aid Al-Batniji, 36, of the Izzadin Al-Kassam Brigades.
