Two Palestinian Children Injured by Israeli Explosive Remnant

HEBRON, January 20, 2012 (WAFA) – The volunteers of Operation Dove in At-Tuwani were informed of the injury of two children in the village of Jinba, in the South Hebron Hills, due to the explosion of an Israeli remnant bomb, Friday said a press release by Operation Dove.

Luai Khalil Rabai, 11 years old, and Islam Ahmed Rabai, 13 years old, were injured by an unexploded device, while grazing their flocks in the Palestinian-owned land near Jinba.

An Israeli military helicopter transported the two injured children in the hospital of Soroka in Beer Sheva.

The two children will have to undergo a surgery at the legs and doctors have said that are not life threatening. At the moment there is no other news about the health of both the children.

The Palestinian village of Jinba is situated 5 kilometers from the Green Line. It is located in the proximity of the Israeli military base of this area. Since the 70s a large portion of the area around the village is used by the Israeli army for military training and it is called ‘Firing Area 918’.

Operation Dove has maintained an international presence in At-Tuwani and South Hebron Hills since 2004.
