A Palestinian worker died on Monday when a tunnel collapsed in the southern Gaza city of Rafah, a health official said.
A Ministry of Health spokesperson Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an that Muhammad Khalid al-Najjar, 27, was killed in the incident.
His body has been taken to the Abu Youssef al-Najjar hospital.
Last week, Ahmad Majed Salim al-Saqqa, 19, from Khan Younis died after he was electrocuted in a tunnel beneath Rafah, while another Palestinian from Khan Younis, Ibrahim Fathi Isleih, 21, died a week before in similar circumstances.
The smuggling tunnels are notoriously dangerous, and workers are frequently killed working inside them.
The Institute for Palestine Studies reported in 2012 that Hamas authorities had counted 160 deaths inside the tunnels since the Israeli blockade began. more
