Witnesses and medical officials said a huge blast rocked a training camp run by Hamas in southern Gaza Strip. At least one person was killed and seven have been wounded.
Ambulances raced to the scene of the blast late Tuesday on the site of an evacuated Jewish settlement next to the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis. The explosion could be heard all over the city, the AP reported.
Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of the Palestinian Health Ministry said all the wounded were Hamas members. Witnesses said the blast destroyed the base, and a fire was burning there an hour afterward. They said a second, smaller explosion was heard about 15 minutes after the first one.
