Unknown Assailants Attack the American School and the State Information Service in Gaza

On the evening of Wednesday, 9 January, unknown gunmen fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the compound of the American School in northern Gaza City, causing damages and no injuries. And in a separate incident, unknown assailants raided the office of the State Information Service in Gaza City and stole its belongings.

PCHR’s preliminary investigation and the statements of the American School guards indicate that at approximately 23:30 on Wednesday, 9 January, three gunmen in a civilian vehicle fired one a rocket-propelled grenade at the building of the American School north of Gaza City. The projectile caused a large explosion and fire in the second story of the building, housing the cafeteria and art rooms. The gunmen fled the scene. And no injuries were reported.

At approximately 1:00 on Monday, 7 January, unknown assailants raided the offices of the State Information Service in a 5-story building near UN Square (Haidar Abd El-Shafi Square) in Gaza City. They searched the offices completely and took all computers and other equipment.

PCHR strongly condemns the attacks on the American School and the State Information Service, and calls upon the PNA, represented by the Attorney-General, to seriously investigate these attacks and prosecute the perpetrators.
