Palestinian from Bethlehem seriously injured by grenade left behind by Israeli soldiers

Feb. 14, 2008 1:19 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 14, 2008 1:19 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Eighteen-year-old Ala Ubayat was seriously injured in the West Bank city of Bethlehem when a grenade left behind by Israeli soldiers exploded in his hands, sources in the Palestinian police told Ma'an on Thursday.

Bethlehem Police Chief Dawood Abu Ghaith said the man was seriously injured when he tried to split the grenade open using an electric cutting machine in his father's blacksmith workshop.

Ghaith added that police engineering unit rushed to the place and found another unexploded grenade, and defused it. Police have opened an investigation into the incident, he said.

He blamed the Israelis for the explosion and warned Palestinian citizens to be careful when they find unexploded Israeli ordinance, urging them to inform the Palestinian police immediately when they find any suspect devices.

Abu Ghaith said the Israeli soldiers deliberately leave behind such devices to tempt ordinary Palestinians to play with them and endanger their lives.
