Two Palestinian children have died in the Gaza Strip after faulty electrical wire set fire to a house in West Gaza. Unable to escape the fire in their room, the two young boys hid in the closet.

Though the deaths were accidental, many have been quick to blame the Palestinian authority and the unity government for not implementing effective safety measures.
