Three Palestinian children were injured when an unexploded Israeli ordnance blew up in Beit Ummar in the Hebron district, a local official said.

Muhammad Awad, coordinator of the local popular committee, said in a statement that the ordnance exploded near a house on Jerusalem-Hebron road late Tuesday, injuring 9-year-old Hasan Mahmoud Masyif Sabarneh, 10-year-old Yamen Muhammad Nassim Sabarneh, and 6-year-old Muhammad Jamal Mustafa Sabarneh, Ma’an reported.

Hasan was moderately injured by burns on his face, chest, and hands, Awad said.

Yamen and Muhammad sustained burns on their hands, he added.

The three were treated at Alia governmental hospital in Hebron.

The West Bank has been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
