Gaza - Ma'an - The union of private Palestinian organisations has strongly condemned the aggression carried out against the Caritas institution by an armed person in the Al-Farahin area of south-eastern Khan Younis in the south of the Gaza Strip this week.
According to a union statement, an armed person shot at water tanks which Caritas staff were distributing in the Al-Farahin area of 'Abasan in Khan Younis. Many of the tanks were damaged.
The union warned that further aggressive acts on local and international health and social organizations are likely in light of the current security lawlessness and the proliferation of arms in the Strip. The union appealed for greater protection for such institutions.
The union also urged the Palestinian Authority to take serious action to
halt the security lawlessness and enforce the law. The union also called on
the PA to persecute the aggressors and bring them to justice.
