GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — A Palestinian man in Gaza was injured on Wednesday after Israeli ordnance exploded in Khan Younis, medics said.
The man, identified only as M.A and said to be in his 20s, was taken to a hospital in the Khuzaa neighborhood with moderate injuries.
Witnesses said he was removing rubble from a building destroyed during Israel’s summer military offensive when the explosion occurred.
In October, four-year-old Muhammad Sami Abu Jrad was killed after he touched an unexploded Israeli ordnance in northern Gaza.
The Gaza Strip is currently littered with a large number of unexploded Israeli ordnance, a constant reminder of the over 50-day Israeli offensive that left more than 2,150 dead, 11,200 injured, and more than 110,000 homeless.
