8-Nov-12: A modest experiment: "Man wounded in Gaza explosion"

Here's a small and modest experiment.

Since we believe Palestinian Arab casualties that result from Palestinian Arab mis-handling or misfiring of Palestinian Arab explosives, guns, rockets, mortars and the like almost never get reported in the mainstream news media, we will be watching to see how much coverage this incident below gets. It appears at this moment on a Bethlehem-based (and somewhat Hamas-hostile) Palestinian news site.

Shooting themselves and their families, friends and neighbors is an everyday event in the catastrophic societies (both Gaza and Judea/Samaria) occupied and created by the Palestinian Arabs. But the news channels wake up only when there's an Israeli party to blame.

Man wounded in Gaza explosion     Published today (updated) 08/11/2012 10:35
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was wounded on Thursday morning when a home-made bomb exploded in central Gaza, a medical official said. Ashraf al-Qidra, Gaza ministry of health spokesman, said that a 23-year-old was moderately wounded in al-Maghazi refugee camp. He was transferred to al-Aqsa hospital in Deir al-Balah.
We don't know but It's possible this 23-year-old Gazan's injuries are related to one of two incidents, both evidently self-inflicted, reported at this hour on the GANSO site:
  • 11/08/2012 - 07:50: MU, 08 NOV: Overnight, 1 HMR fired from E of Rafah toward the Green Line. No injuries reported.
  • 11/08/2012 - 10:45: 08 NOV, 1010hrs: An explosive device went off E of Al Bureij, MA. 1 Pal. injury reported.
