PNN/ Gaza/

Hundreds of Palestinians participated in the funerals of two members of Al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing, who died in a tunnel collapse in Gaza on Wednesday morning.

A statement by Hamas that was published by PIC said the two resistance fighters passed away after a tunnel where they were digging in preparation for any possible future battle with the Israeli occupation forces collapsed.

On Tuesday evening, the ministry of health announced that Ahmad Al-Zahhar (23) and Fuad Abu Eteiwi (39) have died in a tunnel accident.

Last week, seven members of Al-Qassam were announced dead in a tunnel collapse due to rain floods.
