Hamas Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades member Daoud Rezeq Eid Jneid is the latest victim of a Palestinian “work accident”.

A “work accident” is a commonly used term to refer to Palestinian terrorists who die by their own hand when explosives or explosive devices they are handling detonate prematurely. We have covered many such incidents.

We now have a Palestinian Work Accident tag, to keep track of various accidental handling of explosives that have killed terrorists.

The Times of Israel reports on Jneid’s accident:

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 International Middle East Media Center, which describes itself as “a media center developed in collaboration between Palestinian and International journalists to provide independent media coverage of Israel-Palestine” provides the following details:

The Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, has reported that one of its fighters was killed, on Thursday morning, in an accident explosion, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Al-Qassam said the fighter, Daoud Rezeq Eid Jneid, 37, was killed in an accidental explosion “during preparation and training.”

Media sources in Gaza said the Palestinian was killed when a grenade accidentally detonated, in the Civil Defense headquarters, in northern Gaza.

They added that Jneid was killed in the same center which was recently targeted by Israeli missiles and shells.

The Palestinian was from Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Another ‘hand grenade’ accident? That seems to be a common, and likely inaccurate, explanation.
