Boy injured by unexploded Israeli ordnance in Jordan Valley

Jan. 28, 2015 7:58 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 30, 2015 5:49 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A teenage Palestinian boy from the northern West Bank village of Tayasir east of Tubas sustained minor injuries on Wednesday afternoon after an unexploded Israeli ordnance blew up when he walked through a field where it had been left.

Sources in the Israeli Civil Administration said that the boy had wandered into a "military zone" under full Israeli control, and he sustained minor injuries on his hands and feet after coming into contact with the ordnance.

The sources said that their officers notified the Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance service of the explosion, and the boy was subsequently evacuated to the hospital.

The Jordan Valley, where the incident took place, is littered by hundreds of thousands of landmines and unexploded Israeli ordnance left there by the Israeli military.

Palestinian children are frequently injured and even occasionally killed upon coming into contact with the unexploded ordnance.
