Gaza teams deactivate 3 tons of unexploded Israeli ordnance

Police teams in southern Gaza have deactivated three tons of unexploded ordnance from Israel's recent military offensive on the besieged enclave, a statement said Monday.

The Khan Younis engineering unit, part of the local police force, said they have deactivated over three tons of Israeli bombs and missile which landed in the southern Gaza Strip but did not explode.

The police called on residents to be attentive and act with extreme caution if they find a "suspicious device."

On Friday, three Palestinians were killed and two injured when an Israeli bomb blew up in the Shujaiyya neighborhood of eastern Gaza City.

In mid-August, six people were killed and another six were critically injured after an unexploded Israeli missile blew up in Beit Lahiya. more
