Tuesday morning, unknown persons riding a motorcycle threw a hand grenade into the building of the YMCA in the center of Gaza City. No casualties or damages were reported. This attack is a part of the state of security chaos plaguing the occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT).According to investigations conducted by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), at approximately 02:00 on Tuesday, 13 July 2010, unknown persons riding a motorcycle threw a hand grenade into the building of YMCA in al-Jalaa’ Street in the center of Gaza City.
Shrapnel from the grenade spread over the playground, but no casualties or damages were reported. The Palestinian police opened an investigation into the attack.
