Palestinians Bomb UN Club
Can anyone explain this one? This "lawlessness" is severerly hurting their cause. The UNRWA in the Palestinian-held territories is overtly pro-Palestinian and overtly unfriendly towards Israel. It really goes against all logic.
Palestinians bomb Gaza UN club after New Year celebrants exit
By News Agencies
Armed Palestinians briefly seized the United Nations club in Gaza City early Sunday, throwing two explosive devices.
Visitors had already left the club, one of the few places that alcohol is served in conservative Muslim Gaza, when the gunmen tied up the security guard and set explosives that blew out windows and ripped up the roof.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
The attackers tied up the security guard and struck him with gun butts.
Then they set explosives in front of the bar, unrolled a detonator cable and blew up the charges, ripping up the roof and shattering the windows. No one was hurt, the officials said.
The UN is generally viewed with sympathy in the Gaza Strip. Its agency supporting Palestinian refugees is among the biggest employers in the territory.
The club is on the beachfront close to hotels where most foreign visitors stay, and only foreigners are allowed inside.
The building was damaged by the blasts, and plaster from the ceiling littered the floor.
This is the first such attack in Gaza on a UN target, and it came barely a day after three British hostages were freed in the Gaza Strip by a group demanding foreign pressure on Israel.
Chaos has been increasing in the Gaza Strip since the departure of Israel Defense Force troops after the August unilateral disengagement from the Strip and evacuation of Jewish settlements there.
The area has been hit by an increasing wave of lawlessness in recent months, with armed gangs storming government buildings and election offices as well as staging kidnappings and shooting at each other in the streets.
