Palestinian Worker Wounded By Explosive Dropped By Israeli Army

Medical sources in the Gaza Strip reported that a Palestinian man was wounded by unexploded ordinance, apparently dropped by the Israeli army during the war on Gaza last year.

The worker, who was unidentified at the time of this report but is reported by witnesses to be in his mid-30s, was moved to Kamal Adwan hospital suffering moderate wounds.

He was collecting stones and debris near the Erez (Beit Hanoun) Crossing, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

This incident is just the latest in a number of explosions of unexploded ordinance left by the Israeli army in Gaza. Recently, two Palestinian workers were wounded in two separate incidents in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Although millions of dollars were promised by various countries to help rebuild the Gaza Strip and clean up leftover explosives, the Israeli siege on Gaza has prevented the aid money from being distributed, and much of Gaza remains in the same condition as it was after the destructive Israeli invasion 18 months ago.

During its three-week war on Gaza starting in late December 2008, the Israeli army bombarded infrastructure, educational facilities, medical facilities and civilian structures, destroying or severely damaging an estimated 30,000 buildings.
