Palestinian sources reported a blast in Gaza City in which two men were killed and a number were injured. The blast was the result of a "work accident," and the IDF denied any involvement in the incident. According to the report, the explosion happened in the home of the Dahdouh family, which is connected to the Islamic Jihad. Two of the family's members were killed by the IDF in the past. Palestinians also reported that an 11-year-old boy was wounded by shrapnel from an IDF shell in Beit Hanoun.
