One Palestinian was killed and another was injured when an explosive device detonated in a farmer’s field in the Ash-Shahayda neighborhood in eastern Khan Younis on Saturday.
Initial sources said the explosion was caused by unexploded ordinances left behind by the Israeli army during the war on Gaza over the winter. Later statements by Spokesperson of the de facto government interior ministry Eyhab Al-Ghussein, however, indicated the explosion may have been an accident.
Muawieyah Hasaneen, head of Emergency and Ambulance Services in the Ministry of Health, identified the slain as 50-year-old farmer Samer Faraj Ad-Dughmah, and the injured as 50-year-old Ahmad Abu Duqa who was transferred to the local European Hospital for treatment.
