Palestinian man and his wife killed and their son critically wounded due to an explosion in Hebron
A Palestinian man and his wife were killed on Saturday midday, and their son was badly wounded, when an explosive left behind by the Israeli army blew up near the family's house in the village of Sa'ier, near the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
Unexploded ordinances, like the one that killed the Hebron couple Saturday, are a common danger throughout Palestine, where daily invasions of Israeli forces often result in explosives, ordinances and tank shells that are left behind. It is often children who are the victims of these unexploded ordinances, as they are naturally curious and drawn to the strange objects left by the army. At least five children have been killed this year by unexploded ordinances that blew up when they touched or came near them.
