A terrorist was killed when a tunnel collapsed in Gaza City Sunday.

According to the Al Qassam website, "Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades (E.Q.B) the military wing of the Islamic resistance movement Hamas, mourned on Sunday morning, February 5th, 2012, the death of the Qassam member Sameer Abdulrahman Al Ejlah,28, from Al Shujaeiah neighborhood east of the Gaza city."

"The brigades confirmed in a press statement released on Sunday morning, that the martyr Sameer has accidentally died, adding that he was martyred after a long bright path of Jihad, hard work, struggle and sacrifice."

"Al Qassam Brigades mourn the death of the jihadi, reaffirms the commitment and determination to continue the resistance against the belligerent occupation forces."

The Elder of Zion blog notes that according to Palestine Today, the terrorist died when a "resistance tunnel" collapsed. The tunnel was not on the Egypt-Gaza border, however, but apparently in the Sheikh Radwan section of Gaza City.

This means, the blogger says, that "this was most likely a bunker where Hamas keeps its weapons and explosives. Or, possibly, a tunnel meant to kidnap Israeli soldiers."
