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.

Also Thursday, three other children were wounded in an explosion of a suspicious device in Beit Hanoun north of the Gaza Strip, apparently from Israeli remnants, the medics said.
