A two-year-old Gazan, Mohammed al-Hamadin, died on Monday from injuries suffered last week when a rocket exploded during assembly in his home, the Palestine Press reported on Monday. The blast also killed his father, 26, and three other members of Hamas’s military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades.

The rocket explosion also injured five other people in the house, in Beit Hanoun, in the northern Gaza Strip.

Last week, Palestine Today said that the explosion was on the third floor of a family house, and added that the bodies of the “martyrs” were “cut to shreds.”

Israel, Lebanon Agree to Resume Border Talks Next Month

  Israel and Lebanon held "productive" talks over their disputed Mediterranean Sea border on Thursday and agreed to meet again next month,...

On Friday, a 62-year-old woman was reported to have died from a similar accidental rocket explosion, also in Beit Hanoun.

Blogger Elder of Ziyon, who flagged the reports, noted these accidental deaths were no longer being recorded by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), which “used to keep track of the people killed in ‘work accidents’, ‘internal explosions’ and the like. They hardly do that any more. They did not report about either of these.  The Al Mezan Center for Human Rights likewise has ignored deaths of Arabs because of  Palestinian Arab terror groups.”

The blogger said it seemed “funny for organizations that pretend to care about ‘human rights'” to disregard these deaths. “Apparently, even they believe that  only Arabs killed by Israelis deserve ‘human rights’; those killed by Arabs are just irritating distractions from the important news,” Elder of Ziyon said.
