GAZA (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was killed and another seriously injured on Monday evening in an explosion in the town of Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip, according to local officials.

Spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza Ashraf al-Qidra confirmed to Ma'an that 30-year-old Ahmad Abu al-Husna was killed while an unidentified young man was seriously injured in an explosion inside a house in Jabaliya.

The body of al-Husna and the injured young man were evacuated to a hospital in the nearby town of Beit Hanoun.

The Hamas movement released a statement later announcing that al-Husna was a member of Hamas' military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades.

The cause of the explosion remained undetermined.

Previous reports from locals stated that al-Husna was 24-years-old, and that the explosion took place in Beit Hanoun.

In June, a 23-year-old Palestinian was injured when an undetonated Israeli ordnance exploded in the al-Shujaiyyah neighborhood in eastern Gaza City.

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

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

An Israeli army spokesperson said she was looking into reports at the time.
