Three Palestinians, including Hamas activist, injured in Gaza Strip blast
A Hamas activist and two other Palestinians were wounded when a grenade exploded early Tuesday afternoon in the el-Bureij refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.
Palestinian sources said that Abu Ali Baghdadi, a former bodyguard of Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, was "playing" with the grenade at his home when it exploded.
Meanwhile, seven Palestinians were arrested in the West Bank overnight Tuesday, Israel's Army Radio reported.
In the Gaza Strip, thousands of Palestinians took to the streets Tuesday for the funeral of an Islamic Jihad leader killed when occupation troops demolished a house Sunday.
Abdullah Al-Saba's body was found Monday in the rubble of his brother's house in Beit Hanoun, hours after Israeli soldiers withdrew to the outskirts of the town.
Al-Saba's family left the building after a four-hour standoff, during which al-Saba and his three adult sons threw hand grenades and fired shots at Israeli troops. After the family left, soldiers blew up the building.
Rescue workers pulled out the 52-year-old's body from the house of his brother. (Albawaba.com)
