Perhaps once they make the earth so swiss cheese like, it will all collapse into the sea.

As another tunnel collapses, Hamas members refuse to dig
One terrorist killed, several still missing, after tunnel collapses Thursday • Relative of Hamas member tells Israel Hayom: Rumors have spread across Gaza of military wing members who preferred harsh punishments over digging the “tunnels of death.”
Members of the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing, are afraid of being buried alive and have refused orders to enter underground tunnels, which have mysteriously collapsed one after the other in recent months. This, according to Palestinian accounts, is the situation for Hamas in the Gaza Strip as it pursues the development of its attack tunnel capabilities against Israel.
On Thursday, in an open field east of Khan Younis, a tunnel being dug by the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades collapsed, killing 31-year-old Muhammad Musa al Astal, Hamas said.
Palestinian media outlets quoted senior Hamas officials who confirmed that an additional five tunnel diggers were missing and their condition was unknown. Thursday’s tunnel collapse was the seventh such incident in recent months, which have led to dozens of casualties.
