A smuggling tunnel beneath the Gaza-Egypt border collapsed Tuesday, killing four Palestinians, medical personnel said.
Hamas authorities said the men suffocated while working on the tunnel, The New York Times reported. They said the tunnel had been hit by an Israeli missile several days earlier, the U.S. newspaper said.
Tunnels used for smuggling have turned deadly in the past, with people dying when overcome by fumes while moving fuel into Gaza.
That's weird - - Hamas denies they smuggle terrorists and weapons through these tunnels.
And, some Palestinian authorities and supporters deny the tunnels exist.
So, how could 4 die in a non existent tunnel doing something they don't do?
