Work accident! Hamas guy accidentally shoots himself
Hamas’ military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, said Monday that one of its members had died in an accident during a “Jihadi mission” in the northern Gaza Strip.
The brigades said in a statement that 24-year-old Musab Muhammad al-Sheikh, from Jabaliya in northern Gaza, was accidentally shot dead by a bullet from his own gun.
Further details on the circumstances of his death and the nature of the “mission” were not provided.
Al-Sheikh’s funeral was scheduled for Monday at 12 p.m. in Jabaliya refugee camp.
Members of the al-Qassam Brigades are regularly killed during training exercises or in Gaza’s notoriously dangerous tunnel networks in the north and south of the blockaded coastal enclave.
Hamas still refers to him as a “martyr.”
Here is Mr. al-Sheikh posing for the photo that only is released when he dies:
