Palestinian youth dies in tunnel


GAZA, (PIC)-- A young Palestinian died after falling in a border tunnel in Rafah in southern Gaza Strip on Monday, medical sources said.
Spokesman for the higher committee for ambulance and emergency Adham Abu-Salmia said, "The young man Moataz Mohamed Abu Jazar, 19, died due to the fall in the tunnel near the gate of Salahaddin."
He pointed out that Abu Jazar was a tunnel worker and that his body was transferred to Abu Yousef Annajjar hospital.
Dozens of Palestinians died and hundreds injured during work in the border tunnels with Egypt upon which Gaza Strip depends to provide necessary commodities and which the occupation prevents their entry in line within its policy of besieging the Strip that has been imposed for more than six years.
