A Hamas operative died Sunday while digging an underground tunnel, Hamas said in a statement. The group did not identify the location of the tunnel. It was the first time Hamas announced that a member had died while digging tunnels, used by terror groups in Gaza both to smuggle weapons from Egypt and, at times, to penetrate Israel and carry out attacks. Bakar Sassar, 20, of the Nusseirat refugee camp in Gaza, died "while fulfilling his holy mission in an underground tunnel ... while he was preparing with his brothers and colleagues ... to shake the Zionist entity," the Hamas statement read.
