Palestinian Minister of Civil Affairs Mahmoud Dahlan said on Wednesday that the homemade shells fired by the resistance against Israeli settlements and military camps are hurting innocent Palestinians.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Those who are firing the shells are taking the armyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s place and harming innocent civilians and properties more than the Israeli army,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.Ã‚Â
Palestinian ministers met on Wednesday morning to discuss the case of a six-year-old child who was killed,Ã‚Â and eight children who were injured late Tuesday after a shell missed its target and hit homes in Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
One of the injured children is in a critical condition.
The Israeli online daily Haaretz reported that four of the injured children are the sons of Hisham abdul-Raziq, former Palestinian Authority Minister of PrisonersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Affairs, . The children sustained light-to-moderate wounds.
Dahlan also said that the shells are endangering the daily lives of Palestinian residents and their children, in addition to causing more property damage in Palestinian areas.
