Palestinian killed in blast during border riots — Gazan health ministry

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Hamas-run health ministry in the Gaza Strip reports one person killed and seven others hurt in an explosion on the Gaza border during riots.

Palestinian media reports suggest the blast was a result of an explosive device that Palestinians had attempted to detonate next to the Israeli security barrier.

There is no immediate comment from the Israel Defense Forces on the latest riots on the Gaza border.

Earlier, the Hamas-run ministry reported six Palestinians wounded by Israeli fire and riot dispersal means in the area.
