Nine Egyptians wounded in Israel's explosion near Gaza border

Nine Egyptians have been wounded in an Israeli explosion on an Egyptian position near the Gaza border on Sunday, according to Mada Masr.

Ambulances took the wounded to the Arish Military Hospital, according to a medical source and two north Sinai governorate officials who spoke to Mada Masr on condition of anonymity. 

The Israeli army confirmed that they fired in the area, and said it was an accident, with the incident being investigated.

The explosion came at the same time that a second aid convoy was entering Gaza since the start of the war on 7 October.
