Gaza children wounded while playing with bomb

Sunday, September 23, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

Four Palestinian Arab children were wounded on Friday while playing with a bomb they found in the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahiya.

The boys, aged 10 to 16, were taken to a local Palestinian hospitals where they were listed in moderate-to-serious condition.

Palestinian media claimed the bomb was left behind by Israeli forces that operated there earlier in the week, though no evidence was provided to support that assertion. Palestinians are regularly wounded and killed by their own makeshift weapons and bombs.
