Saleh al-Astal

July 18, 2016: Saleh al-Astal, 28, was killed when a border tunnel collapsed on him, in the town of Al-Qarara, in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, said the Palestinian was one of its fighters, and that he was working in the tunnel, along with other Palestinians, when it collapsed.

Medical sources in Khan Younis said First Responders managed to locate al-Astal’s body, and rescued three other Palestinians, who suffered various injuries.

Many tunnels spread across the border fence in the Gaza Strip; while some are used by armed groups such as Hamas, most tunnels are used for smuggling food, goods and medicines into the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip.

Hundreds of Palestinians were killed, and injured, in numerous tunnel accident across the border fence in Gaza.

Most of them were civilians who resorted to working in the dangerous tunnels to provide for their families, suffering under a tight siege, and repeated Israeli wars on the Gaza Strip. Saleh was from Khan Younis. Source: IMEMC
