Explosion kills Palestinian girl in Beit Lahiya

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A young Palestinian girl died and three family members suffered injuries late Tuesday in an explosion in Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip, medics said.

Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, said four people including two children arrived at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. The two children were in critical condition.

Residents in the area said they believed the explosion was caused by a homemade rocket.

Israeli media reported earlier Tuesday that at least two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip landed in southern Israel.

The "Iron Dome" rocket defense system managed to intercept one of the projectiles, Israel's Ynet news site reported.

They were fired toward the Hof Ashkelon regional council, according to the report.
