Al-Qassam member dies inside tunnel in Khan Younis

Feb. 27, 2019 10:49 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 27, 2019 12:24 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian, who is a member of the al-Qassam Brigades the military wing of the Hamas movement, died late Tuesday while inside a "resistance tunnel" in the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed that Muhammad Ibrahim Hamdan Qudeih, 24, arrived dead to the European Hospital.

The al-Qassam Brigades declared that Qudeih is a member in Abasan al-Kabira in eastern Khan Younis, confirming that he died of a heart attack while working inside a "resistance tunnel" in Khan Younis.
Scores of Palestinians in Gaza have been killed in the vast tunnel networks that lie below the besieged enclave, which are largely used for smuggling in the south and military purposes in the north.

While the tunnels along the southern border with Egypt are used by Hamas as a source of tax revenue and inflow of weapons, they also supply highly demanded necessities for Gazans -- who have been trapped under Israeli siege for a decade -- including food, medicine, and much-needed infrastructure materials.
