 A Hamas terrorist was killed and nine others injured on Saturday from an "internal explosion" in the southern Gaza city of Rafah on the border with Egypt, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported. 

Meanwhile, Israeli media reported that the blast had occurred while members of Hamas's al-Qassam brigades were learning how to produce bombs.


Hamas named 30-year-old Ibrahim Nagib al-Ghoul as the casualty from what it deemed an accidental incident.
