Palestinian youth injured as Israeli ordnance explodes in Gaza City

June 18, 2016 10:30 P.M. (Updated: June 20, 2016 4:22 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A 23-year-old Palestinian was injured as an undetonated Israeli ordnance exploded in the al-Shujaiyyah neighborhood in eastern Gaza City Saturday evening, according to local sources.

The ordnance was believed to be from Israel's 2014 onslaught on the Gaza Strip.

The youth, who sustained shrapnel across his body, was taken to the al-Shifaa Hospital in Gaza City for treatment where his condition was reported as "medium."

An Israeli army spokesperson said she was looking into reports.

The Shujaiyyah neighborhood of Gaza City was among on of the worst hit areas in the 2014 war in the besiged coastal enclave, that left over 2,000 Palestinians dead, many of whom were civilians.

The neighborhood of Shujaiyyah was particularly devastated by an Israeli ground invasion, with reports of bodies strewn across the streets, some burnt almost beyond recognition, with whole appendages missing.

At least 66 people were killed, and hundreds more were injured in what many called a "massacre."
