GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three young Palestinian men were injured in an “accidental” explosion in the town of Rafah in the besieged Gaza Strip on Monday morning.

Ashraf al-Qidra, the spokesman for Gaza’s Ministry of Health, said that three wounded were admitted to the Abu Yousif al-Najjar Hospital in Rafah.

Meanwhile, pro-Hamas news site Palestinian Information Center reported that the three men were wounded "in an accidental explosion inside a resistance military post" in the neighborhood of Tal al-Sultan in Rafah, without giving any more details.

Israeli officials have accused Hamas of "preparing" for another war with Israel and have threatened retaliatory measures against the Gaza Strip as a whole.

However, despite Hamas' inflammatory rhetoric against Israel, the movement has not officially claimed responsibility for any military action from Gaza against Israel since the 2014 war.
