The Palestinian police in Gaza arrested on Saturday a man suspected of involvement in organizing attacks against Christian associations in the Gaza Strip.

Iyahb Al Eghsson, the spokesman of the defacto ministry of interior in Gaza told reporters that the man was arrested after investigations were conducted by the police in the coastal region to arrest those involved in attacking local shops and other associations.

In recent months several attacks were reported by unknown masked gunmen that targeted Christian schools, churches and NGOS.
