Teenager loses hand after picking up discarded Israeli ordnance

The detonation of explosive ordinance on Thursday seriously wounded Arab Salim resident Hassan Mahmoud Musa, 19.

Musa was wandering in the Wadi al-Akhdar area near the Nabatieh town of Kfar Roummane when he found the ordnance, left by Israeli forces upon their withdrawal in May 2000.

The blast occurred when Musa picked up the device.

He was rushed to the Najda Shaabia Loubaniya Hospital in Nabatieh, where his left hand was amputated.
