Hamas commander dies in accidental explosion in Gaza Strip
[IsraelTimes] Abdel Rahim Abbas said killed at police bomb disposal unit’s headquarters after kabooms catch fire
A member of the Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth", security forces was killed Wednesday in an accidental kaboom in the Gazoo Strip, the Paleostinian terror group reported.
The military wing of Hamas announced the man was Abdel Rahim Abbas, 42, a local commander of the Hamas security forces.
The Hamas-run Gazoo interior ministry said the kaboom happened at the administrative headquarters for the police’s bomb disposal unit and was a result of kabooms catching on fire during an inspection.
Police and civil defense units extinguished the fire caused by the kaboom, the ministry added.
A Hamas security source said he was trying to neutralize an Israeli munition.
