An explosion collapsed a tunnel under the Gaza-Egypt border early Friday, trapping five terrorists inside and killing at least one, Palestinians said. The Aksa Martyrs' Brigades said the five were members. The group refused to say what they were doing. The group said the explosion was not caused by an IAF air strike, after first blaming Israel. The IDF said it had no forces inside Gaza and denied involvement in the incident.
