Hamas: 7 Terrorists Killed in Rafah


Nine terrorists were killed in Gaza Sunday evening, following Israeli airstrikes on the Hamas-ruled area.

Seven of the terrorists were killed in the city of Rafah, which straddles the border with Egypt. They were in a tunnel used for smuggling between the two sides of the border. The tunnel collapsed but it is not known if the collapse was due to Israeli fire or the premature detonation of explosives, also known as a terrorist work accident.
