A member of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing, was killed on Thursday in an “accidental explosion” in the northern Gaza Strip, the terror group said.

Daoud Jneid of Jabalia in northern Gaza “was martyred in an accidental explosion,” the Qassam Brigades said in a statement on its official website.

The Hamas-run Health Ministry said Jneid was 37. The Qassam Brigades said he was 39.

The explosion took place at a site that belongs to an armed group in Gaza, the Hamas-linked Palestinian Information Center reported, citing local sources.

The report did not say to which armed group the site belongs.

“He passed away on the path of struggle and resistance and in the field of honor and might,” the Qassam Brigades statement added.

Hamas’s military wing frequently fires rockets at southern Israel and encourages and praises violent attacks against Israelis in the West Bank and Jerusalem.

In early September, 42-year-old Abdel Rahim Abbas, another member of Hamas’s military wing, was killed in an “accidental explosion,” the Qassam Brigades said in a statement at the time.
