Death Tunnel

Mohamed Harb, Palestine, 2011

After the closure of all crossing points from Egypt into Gaza, Gazans dug tunnels under the border town of Rafah to provide a lifeline to their families. So far, Israeli air raids have killed over 400 Gazans working in these tunnels,. Today, as digging develops and tunnels are now able to accommodate cars, working in them has become even more dangerous. Khaled died while working in the tunnels to support his wife and son. Now Mahmoud and Wesam could also become victims. Death Tunnel is their tragic story, that of the fear they endure to live like others.

Death Tunnel was broadcast on Al-Jazeera English.
