A member of Hamas' armed wing died Thursday during a mission in eastern Gaza, medical officials and witnesses said.This tunnel was nowhere near the Egyptian border.
Mohammad Ahmad al-Sarhi, 20, from the Zaytoun neighborhood of Gaza City, was killed in a tunnel collapse, and three other people were wounded, health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said.
Witnesses in the area confirmed to Ma'an that a group of Al-Qassam members were operating in a tunnel east of Zaytoun when the tunnel collapsed suddenly.
Which means it was either an underground bunker to stockpile weapons, or it was a tunnel to kidnap Israelis.
Hamas' Al Qassam website called it a "resistance tunnel."
A little context is a useful thing.
