GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian father and son were killed, and three others injured, in an unexplained explosion, west of besieged Gaza City on Sunday.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza confirmed the deaths of Palestinian Ahmad Mansour Hassan, 35, and his 13-year-old son, Louay Ahmad Hassan, after being injured in an explosion on Sunday.

Colonel Ayman al-Batniji of the Gaza police, said that the explosion occurred in a house west of Gaza City killing Hassan and his son.
