UN Summer Camp/Vacation Spot in Gaza Torched

About 30 masked gunmen set fire, Thursday evening to the Paris Gardens vacation spot in northern Gaza, according to Gaza media. A summer camp run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Gaza was also torched.

A year ago the camp was set on fire by 20 masked gunmen, who left a letter complaining about joint activities for boys and girls at the camp. Prior to the Paris Gardens fire, the owners asked the police, in vain, for protection.
