Police in Gaza said they are investigating the cause of a blast which killed a man and his son in the enclave on Sunday.

The explosion came hours after a ceasefire ended a fierce flare-up in fighting between Israel and Hamas, but police did not suggest Israel was responsible.

“An explosion took place this morning in a house west of Gaza City,” police spokesman Ayman al-Batnijiy said. He gave their ages as 35 and 13.

“The police launched an investigation into the cause of the explosion.”
