Remember, folks, it’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.

Update: Meanwhile, here’s a real work accident.

A militant affiliated to the armed wing of Hamas was killed in the Gaza Strip during a military drill on Monday night.

Al-Qassam Brigades fighter Osama Adel Awad, 19, from the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood of Gaza City, “died a martyr” during the drill, according to an announcement broadcast over mosque loudspeakers in the city.

The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear.
