GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A field leader of Hamas' armed wing died on Wednesday, the group said in a statement, noting he succumbed to wounds sustained in an unspecified accident days earlier.

A statement from the Al-Qassam Brigades named the man as Mahmoud As-Safadi, from the Ad-Daraj neighborhood of Gaza City, but did not give details as to the nature of the activity he had been involved with when he was injured.

On Tuesday, several people were injured as Israeli forces fired at a group of people in the Az-Zaitoun neighborhood in Gaza City, Palestinian medical sources said.

One week earlier an Al-Qassam fighter was killed in an unexplained Rafah explosion.
