Eight Hamas men missing after Gaza tunnel collapse

Eight members from the Hamas group were missing Wednesday after the collapse of a tunnel in the Gaza Strip caused by rain and flooding, a security source said. The tunnel collapsed overnight in the area of Jabalia in the north of the Palestinian enclave after several days of rainfall, the security source in the area said on condition of anonymity. “The resistance tunnel collapsed last night due to the weather and flooding,” the source said, adding that the tunnel belonged to Hamas, the Islamist movement that rules the Gaza Strip. “There were 11 resistance men inside. Three of them escaped in the first hour after the accident, but the security operation… continues to search for the eight others.”
