GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian militants were killed and two others were injured Saturday in an explosion at a military training site in the southern Gaza Strip, an official said.
Ashraf al-Qidra, Gaza's health ministry spokesman, said two "unidentified citizens" were killed and two sustained serious injuries in an explosion in Khan Younis, without providing details about the cause of the explosion.
He said the injured were taken to nearby Nasser Hospital.
Islamic Jihad said in a statement that the men who died were affiliated to the faction's military wing, the al-Quds Brigades.
