Dateline – Israel. 9:15 PM
This post was updated and corrected at 11:45PM from the original version following the release of additional information from the COGAT office.
A 15 year old Palestinian teenager from Gaza has been transported to Israel for emergency medical treatment in the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot.
The Arab teenager was seriously injured while preparing to launch a Palestinian Qassam rocket at Israeli civilians in Southern Israel, when the rocket suddenly malfunctioned and exploded. COGAT indicates that a second boy was killed in the attempted attack, and that the Palestinians tried to blame Israel for his death.
The explosion took place in Jabalya in Gaza.
