Several people were wounded Saturday in a gas tank explosion in east Jerusalem.

The blast occurred in a three-story residential building in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood.

The injured were evacuated to hospitals by Israeli and Palestinian ambulances.

Five people were killed and eleven injured in Acre last month when a gas tank explosion caused a building to collapse. Police later arrested four people, saying the explosion was a deliberate act of sabotage.
