3 Palestinians wounded in Gaza blast

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were injured Friday by an explosion east of Gaza City, medics said.

Palestinian medics said three factory workers sustained multiple injuries in Ash-Shuja'iyeh and were transferred to the Ash-Shifa Hospital.

Gaza emergency services spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya blamed Israeli tank fire.

However, an Israeli army spokesman said there was no military activity in the area at all on Friday.

Israeli sources said the blast was likely caused by mortars fired by Palestinian militants trying to target Israel.

An uneasy truce has been in place along the Gaza border for the last two weeks, after days of soaring violence in which Israeli troops pounded Gaza, killing 19 Palestinians, which followed an attack in which an anti-tank missile hit a school bus, killing an Israeli teenager.
