Explosion near French center in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was injured late Friday in an explosion that occurred near the French Cultural Center in western Gaza City.

Gaza police spokesman Ayman al-Batneiji told Ma'an that the explosion injured one Palestinian.

Al-Batneiji added that the Gaza police, explosives engineering and the criminal investigations department arrived to the area and opened an investigation into the incident.

It was the second explosion that occurred at the same site in less than a month.

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the attack, saying that "the side responsible for such a criminal action does not belong to Palestinians as culture is a major part of the Palestinian identity."

The statement added that those responsible for the explosions are "ignorant and do not appreciate the role of culture in the Palestinian national fight." more
