UN Camp in Gaza Vanadalized

A group of vandals severely damaged a UN camp in Gaza overnight Wednesday. The summer camp was largely destroyed, with much of it burned down, a UNWRA spokesperson said Thursday.

UN camps for children have been targeted in the past by Hamas terrorists. Analysts said that Hamas was displeased with the presence of the UN camps in Gaza, which they believe “steal” children away from Hamas' own camps.
