1 injured as Israeli ordnance explodes in Gaza

Ma'an - GAZA CITY – A resident of Jabalia refugee camp in northern Gaza was injured Sunday when an ordnance left by the Israeli army exploded, medics said.

The 25-year-old was transferred to Kamal Adwan hospital in critical condition.

United Nations Mine Action Service works in Gaza to destroy unexploded ordnance left behind by Israeli forces. In March, the agency began a program to destroy white phosphorus left behind during Operation Cast Lead, Israel's three-week offensive on the Strip launched in December 2008.
