Palestinian medical sources in the Gaza Strip reported that a Palestinian man was killed, and another was injured, in a tunnel accident in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The accident took place in a siege-busting tunnel in As-Salaam neighborhood, in Rafah; one resident was also injured.

The body of the slain Palestinian, age 33, and the wounded resident, were moved to the Abu Yousef An-Najjar Hospital in Rafah.

A week ago Saturday, a Palestinian teenager was killed, on Saturday at night, when a siege-busting tunnel, in Rafah in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, collapsed on him.

The youth was identified as Hamza Abu Morr, 19. The accident took place in a tunnel located in Al-Barazil neighborhood, in Rafah.

The Al-Mezan Center for Human rights reported Thursday that the number of Palestinians killed in tunnel accidents arrived to 232, including twenty Palestinians who were killed after the Israeli army bombarded several tunnels as they were in them.

Around 600 Palestinians have been wounded in these incidents.
