Palestinian condemnations of attack on American School
Unknown persons detonated explosives this morning at the American School in the northern Gaza Strip. Information Minister, Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi, immediately issued a condemnation from the West Bank's Ramallah.
“The explosion damaged large parts of the school, which is a violation of the law and an abuse of an institution trying to serve the Palestinian people. This event seems to be an attempt to undermine national unity and the Palestinian people.”
Dr. Barghouthi added that the continued encroachment on public and private property during this time of internal security chaos serves only the interests of the enemies of the Palestinian people. “The government has a plan to control the security problems and will not allow such violations to occur. The competent authorities will bring the perpetrators to justice.”
The Hamas Change and Reform bloc in the Palestinian Legislative Council and the leftist Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine also issued condemnations.
