GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Medical officials said Thursday that a young boy died two days after an explosion in the al-Sheikh Radwan area in the northern Gaza Strip.

Imad Abu Qadrous, 5, died of severe head wounds and three others sustained injuries in the blast, said Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the ministry of health in Gaza.

He said Imad's brother Younis lost his arm due to the explosion.
