At least four members of a Palestinian family have been killed and 13 others injured in Gaza after an unexploded Israeli bomb from last year’s war went off.
Gaza health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said on Thursday the ordnance exploded as Palestinian workers were helping family members remove rubble from a house destroyed in the 50-day war between Israel and Hamas, who rule the coastal territory.
The bomb is believed to have been dropped in an air strike on the house during the war.
Last year, six people, including an Associated Press video journalist and his Palestinian translator, were killed as Gaza police engineers tried to defuse unexploded Israeli ordnance. Three people, including an AP photographer, were badly injured.
