GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Five members of Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades and a Palestinian firefighter died in an explosion inside a tunnel in the al-Tuffah neighborhood near a Hamas military site in eastern Gaza City on Thursday.

Ministry of health spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said firefighter Hussein Tawfiq Masoud, 28, from Rafah died after inhaling gas in the tunnel.

The dead Hamas fighters were identified as Salman Naim al-Harazin, Ahmad Khalil Ayyad, Ibrahim Salih al-Qar'an, Raed Kamil Marshoud, and Khalil al-Gharabli, all from al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood.

Witnesses told Ma'an that an explosion shook a house in the al-Tuffah neighborhood, and ambulances and civil defense services rushed to the scene.

A day earlier the same neighborhood area was targeted by an Israeli airstrike.

It seems that Hamas strategy is going parallel with Israeli's one. Hamas: Why you don't do unity first, if you interesting in unity, then do resistance against Israeli occupiers? !!!

Now you know why the same area was targeted by an Israeli strike, because Hamas is carrying out violent missions there. This article proves that Israel is right to carry out their strikes. Thankfully the explosion killed the idiots who were trying to harm others and not the civilians.

Thank G-d no innocents were injured. Last I checked its a war crime to initiate rocket fire and the like in civilian popluation areas. Palestinians should know that it is Hamas who chooses the Israeli targets by deciding where to fire from. Lets pray that when the Israelis retaliate to the coming rocket fire, there will be no collateral damage of innocents because if there is, Hamas will be responsible. Unlike either side in the Syrian arena, Israel is very careful to avoid harming civilians.
