A resident of the Gaza Strip died on Saturday after being electrocuted as he worked in a tunnel on the border between the blockaded territory and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, a medical source has said.
Ibrahim Islih, 21, a resident of the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis, was electrocuted as he worked inside the tunnel, the source told.
Egyptian authorities have been cracking down on a network of smuggling tunnels between Sinai and Gaza for several months now.
The clampdown brought to a halt tunnel digging activities in the Gaza Strip.
Egypt says the tunnels are used in militant activities inside Sinai.Last Mod: 12 Nisan 2015, 09:22
