JORDAN VALLEY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian died on Sunday of injuries sustained after a ordnance left by Israeli army exploded in Bardala village in the Jordan Valley.

Witnesses said Ahmad Abd al-Rahman al-Sheikh, 44, suffered injuries in the head and chest after the ordnance exploded while he was grazing his sheep.

He was taken to an Israeli hospital in critical condition, where he later died of his wounds.

Residents said the Israeli army performed drills in the area two days earlier. However, an Israeli army representative denied that any drill took place in the area during this time.

The official said the man was transferred from a military checkpoint to Rambam hospital by helicopter.
