Work accident(s)!

From Ma'an:
A member of Hamas' armed wing died Wednesday during a "Jihad" mission near Ash-Shati refugee camp west of Gaza City, the Al-Qassam Brigades announced.

Muhammad Rushdi Aqbalan, 52, died after suffering an electric shock, the group said.
This sounds like he was killed while in a weapons tunnel. That's the usual place that Gazans die from electric shock. 52 is a bit old for being a tunnel worker, though.

An Islamic Jihad terrorist who was killed when his car exploded may have been the victim of another "work accident" as well, as Israel denied any airstrikes. It all points to a lack of quality control in Gaza's rocket industry.
