Gaza City, Palestinian Territories-An explosion that ripped through a house in the southern Gaza Strip Thursday killed at least two people and wounded 20 others, an official said, but the cause of the blast was unclear.
"Two men in their 20s were killed, while 20 others were injured in a blast inside a house in Al-Shabura (refugee) camp near Rafah," Gaza health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told AFP.
Officials in the Palestinian territory said an investigation was underway to determine the cause.
The Gaza Strip, ruled by Islamist movement Hamas, has seen three wars with Israel in the last six years.
