AFP - 2 hours 9 minutes ago
GAZA CITY (AFP) - - A Palestinian militant was killed and another wounded in an explosion as a group prepared to fire a rocket, medics and witnesses said on Saturday.
The witnesses said that the blast in northern Gaza was the result of an Israeli air strike but the Israeli army denied that they had undertaken any attack in the area.
"We haven't carried out a strike in northern Gaza in recent hours. The explosion might be due to mishandling of weapons," an army spokesman said.
A doctor at Beit Lahiya hospital said that the wounded militant was in a critical condition.
