Hamas tunnel collapse - in northern Gaza - kills two kids

Palestine Press Agency reports that two boys, aged 11 and 12, were killed when a tunnel collapsed underneath them. A 20-year old man was wounded. (The boys weren't digging or smuggling, they just happened to be above the cavity when it gave way.)

But this tunnel was not a smuggling tunnel in Rafah. It was dug underneath a "refugee" camp in Jabalya, in northern Gaza.

Which means that it is either a bunker that Hamas is building under civilian houses and buildings, or that it is a tunnel meant to go to Israel to attack Jews.

Either way, you can be sure that no human rights agencies will notice or condemn Hamas.

Meanwhile, a 20-year old woman was killed by two gunshots in central Gaza, but officials are not calling it an honor crime.
