A Palestinian suffocated to death in a smuggling tunnel along the Gaza Strip's border with Egypt, a Gaza health official said on Saturday. Dr. Moaiya Hassanain said that five other people were hospitalized after suffering from a lack of oxygen. Local residents said that the six were smuggling food on Saturday. Halting smuggling into Gaza is a key issue in negotiations for a long-term truce between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
