Four Palestinian Authority Arabs were injured Sunday afternoon in an explosion in Jabaliya, according to local sources in Hamas terrorist-ruled Gaza. The cause of the explosion was not revealed. 

Among the injured were a couple and their son, who were moderately wounded, the source said. The identity of the fourth injured party was also not revealed, nor were the circumstances surrounding the blast.

Often in such cases, explosions are the result of a terrorism “work accident” in which terrorists are preparing weapons, rockets or other dangerous explosive materials for use in attacks against Israeli citizens.

The IDF said there had been no activity in that area on Sunday afternoon.

Israeli Air Force pilots struck a terrorist cell in Gaza on Saturday after PA terrorists shelled Jewish towns in the western Negev and tried to plant bombs near the security fence.

The shelling, aimed at the Eshkol Regional Council district less than a kilometer from Gaza, caused no property damage and no one was physically injured, an IDF spokesperson said.
