In the past five days, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) documented the injuries of eight persons, including two children and three women, due to the explosions of home-made rockets in populated areas across the Gaza Strip. The injury of one of the women was described as serious. PCHR calls upon concerned authorities to investigate these incidents, to take necessary measures to ensure the non-recurrence of such incidents and to provide protection to civilians. The latest incident took place at approximately 01:40 on Monday, 22 August 2011, when a home-made rocket landed onto the roof of a 3-storey house belonging to Sobhi Ibrahim Shakhsa, 53, where three families live, in al-Tawaheen area in al-Shuja'ya neighborhood in the east of Gaza City. As the result of the rocket's explosion, three sons of Shakhsa were shocked and were transported to Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. Besides, the rocket made a hole in the roof, falling part of the southern wall of the house and damaging the water network and doors. In his testimony to a PCHR field worker, Shakhsa said that the Explosives Police arrived at the scene and collected the rocket's shrapnel, but the civil police did not come to investigate the incident.
