Two children were injured on Monday, August 19, 2019, after tampering with a firearm that was inside their family's home in Balqa governorate, spokesman for the Public Security Directorate (PSD) said in a statement.

The PSD said that the two children (14 and 6) had been taken to a nearby hospital as one received a shot in the foot, while the other sustained a toe injury.

The PSD warned people of the danger of keeping guns unprotected at homes and called on them to keep the guns out of children's hands in case they possess licenced firearms.
