The Palestinian Ministry of Interior reported on Wednesday evening that two residents were injured when an explosive went off near them in Gaza.

A Palestinian security source said that Khaled Ali al-Ajour, 18, and Hosney Mohammad abu Taha, 23, were injured after an explosive charge detonated as they were walking close to it.

The ministry said that the explosion was most likely caused by a homemade shell which was fired earlier by the resistance and detonated on Wednesday.
