Problems appear to be coming in spades for the Islamist group Hamas and its followers in the Gaza Strip.

During a mass funeral for seven Hamas operatives who died after the tunnel in which they were digging collapsed due to the heavy rains that pounded the region earlier this week, a number of Palestinians required medical treatment when the ceiling of a kiosk in Gaza City collapsed under the weight of a number of people who were standing on the rooftop.

צרות באות בצרורות: במהלך ההלוויה של שמונת המחבלים שנהרגו בקריסת המנהרה ברצועת עזה, אירעה קריסה של תקרת חנות, עליה עמדו תומכי חמאס שלקחו חלק בהלוויה. לא ברור כמה נפגעו באירוע.
