Palestinian injured as Egyptian shell hits southern Gaza

March 1, 2018 1:10 P.M. (Updated: March 2, 2018 1:48 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- One Palestinian was injured after an Egyptian shell hit lands in the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah, allegedly by mistake.

Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that a Palestinian was lightly injured when passing nearby an abandoned house in Rafah City as the mortar shell hit the house.

Locals added that explosions are heard on a near-constant basis in Rafah city as fighting continues between the Egyptian army and so-called Islamic State militants in the Sinai Peninsula.

Violence in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula involving the Islamic State-affiliated Sinai Province group -- formerly known as Ansar Beit al-Maqdis -- has escalated since Egyptian President Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi took power from Muhammad Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013, and has since left hundreds killed, including civilians, security forces, and alleged militants.
