It turned out that this was an attack on the Islamic movement “Islamic Jihad of Palestine.” The movement, mainly active in the Gaza Strip, released information that an explosive device had been activated near the house of Akram al-Khajuri, one of his commanders. As a result, two people were killed, six more were injured.
