TUBAS (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian teenager suffered moderate injuries to his hand Friday after an Israeli explosive device detonated in Tubas, Palestinian officials said.

Ahmed Saraia, 17, was taken to Rafidia hospital in Nablus where the tips of several fingers on his right hand were amputated due to damage sustained from picking up the object, Tubas police said in a statement.

Police urged residents to alert authorities about such objects, and not to handle them. Residents should be particularly cautious in the Al-Aghwar area, which is near an army training site.
