Tunnels-deadly lifelines into GazaA Palestinian was suffocated to death on Sunday when one of the 800 or more tunnels along the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt collapsed. Two others were injured in the collapse which happened when the workers were bringing in supplies from Egypt.
While I was in Gaza one tunnel worker, a child, was killed and seven were injured during an Israeli bombing raid.
The I.5 million people living in Gaza depend on hundreds of tunnels beneath the border to get fuel and other products since Gaza has been sealed off after Hamas takeover in June 2007. But Israeli bombings are frequent and more than 130 Palestinians, many of them children have been killed while working in the tunnels.
