‘Accidental’ blast in Gaza injures 2 at reported Hamas military site

Two Palestinians are injured in an explosion in the Gaza Strip, the Hamas-run health ministry says, in what appears to be the second such accident at the terror group’s military sites this month.

Palestinian media in the Strip reports the explosion occurred in a site belonging to the terror group’s military wing, but gives no further details.

Gaza Health Ministry spokesperson Ashraf al-Qidre says in a statement that “two men sustained injuries, one critically and the other moderately, resulting from an accident in Gaza.”

In a break from past statements about other explosions in Gaza, Qidre declines to give an approximate location for the site of the blast.

Earlier in April, an explosion at a reported Hamas military site west of Rafah injured three men.
