A group of masked men cut of the phone and internet cable lines of the office of Palestinian News Agency (WAFA) in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, on Thursday morning, causing the office to shut down.

According to WAFA, this is not the first attack that targets their office in Nablus. Workers in the office received a death threat via phone call on Wednesday, the agency said.

Abd Al Aziz Abu Wardah, the director of the office stated that these unjustified acts are not helping anyone and called upon all Palestinians to protect the Palestinian organizations from those thugs as he described them.
