Wanted Hamas Militant Leader Killed in Gaza in ‘Accidental’ Explosion


51 yr-old Ibrahim Hussein Abu al-Naja, wanted by the IDF for being a leader of Hamas’s armed wing, was finally ‘done in’ by an “accidental” explosion in Gaza.



A prominent leader of Hamas’ Izzadin Kassam brigade was killed Wednesday in an “accidental” explosion in southern Gaza, according to PA news outlet Ma’an.

The explosion occurred at a Hamas post near Rafah, injuring three other militants, according to the Palestinian news agency.

Hamas described Ibrahim Hussein Abu al-Naja as a prominent leader and said the source of the explosion was not clear.

This is not the first time militants have been killed in mysterious Gaza Strip explosions, with Ma’an reporting that numerous Hamas “resistance posts” have been destroyed over the past few years.

On April 26, an “accidental” explosion killed an Islamic Jihad military member during preparatory work in the site, the terrorist group announced.

The Gaza Ministry of Health later stated that another Palestinian was wounded in the same “accident.”
