2 Palestinian children killed after Israeli ordnance explodes in Negev

April 25, 2017 10:49 P.M. (Updated: April 26, 2017 10:17 A.M.)
NEGEV (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian children were killed on Tuesday evening when an Israeli ordnance exploded in the Abu Qeidar area of the unrecognized Bedouin village of al-Zarnouq in the Negev of southern Israel.

Locals told Ma’an that the device was left over from the Israeli army. The children were identified as 8-year-old Omar Ismail Abu Qweidar, and his 10-year-old cousin Muhammad Mahmoud Abu Qeidar.

The children were declared dead at the scene of the explosion.

Israeli police spokesperson Luba al-Samri confirmed the incident in a written statement, revealing that Omar was in fact just 6-and-a-half years old, and said that the two boys were playing with the ordnance when it exploded.
