GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Explosive experts in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday detonated unexploded ordnance left behind from Israel's war on the territory in November, Gaza's deputy police chief said.

Zuhair Shahin told Ma'an that experts collected the unexploded devices and detonated them in an open area near Khan Younis, south Gaza.

In January, a seven-year-old child was killed when a suspected ordnance exploded in south Gaza. Several other people have been wounded by explosive devices left behind from Israeli attacks.
