September 11th, 2019: Mohammad Fawzi Najjar, 25, died in an explosion in a tunnel in southern Gaza.
The al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, confirmed that one of its fighters was killed, on Thursday at dawn, in an accident in a siege-busting tunnel, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
In a statement, the Brigades said the Palestinian, identified as Mohammad Fawzi Najjar, 25, was killed in what it described as an accident in a tunnel, east of Khan Younis.
It is worth mentioning that Mohammad was the brother of Abdullah Fawzi Najjar, 22, also a member of the al-Qassam Brigades, who was killed when Israeli war jets fired missiles at a tunnel, on July 29th, 2014, during the summer offensive on Gaza.
