4 Civilians Injured in Accidents Resulting from the Misuse of Weapons

On the afternoon of Thursday, 2 March 2006, two Palestinian men from Beit Lahya (northern Gaza Strip) were injured in an explosion of an unidentified weapon.  In addition, two children in Beit Lahya were injured by gunshots fired from a gun that a youth has been playing with in the area

PCHR’s initial investigation indicates that at approximately 12:00 on Thursday, Hassan Khader Khudeir (21) and Mohammad Khader El-Louh (20) were injured in the legs by shrapnel.  The injuries may have resulted from the explosion of a home-made grenade.  Both men were transported to Kamal Odwan Hospital in their hometown of Beit Lahya, where their injuries were classified as moderate.

On the evening of Wednesday, 1 March 2006, Mohammad Fathi Wahdan (7) was injured by shrapnel to the neck and Rami Isam El-Wehedi (11) was injured by shrapnel to the legs.  The injuries resulted from gunshots which were fired, while a youth was playing with a gun in the area of the Sheikh Zayed Housing Project.  Wahdan’s injuries were classified as serious.  El-Wehedi’s injuries were moderate and he was discharged from the hospital soon after.

PCHR points to the increasing number of injuries and deaths occurring in accidents such as these.  The Centre calls upon the Palestinian National Authority to take preventive action against such accidents and to safeguard citizens’ safety and security.
