An Islamic Jihad operative died Monday morning apparently while handling explosives at the Jabalia refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

Nizar Said Issa, 25, was active in the terrorist organization’s military wing and was working with explosives at the time of the accident, according to Channel 2.

He was evacuated to Kamal Hospital in Beit Lehia, where he died of his wounds.
