Gaza's "Crazy Water Park" Is Burned to the Ground

"Crazy Water Park" had been one of the most popular recreation spots for residents of the Gaza Strip, until it was closed last week by Hamas, which opposes men and women bathing together, and set ablaze on Sunday. As reported by the Jerusalem Post:

"Unidentified gunmen on Sunday set fire to Crazy Water Park, one of the Gaza Strip's most popular entertainment sites.

Eyewitnesses said that at least 25 assailants participated in the pre-dawn attack. The gunmen beat the two night watchmen, bound their hands and confiscated their mobile phones before setting the complex on fire, they said.

Manager Ala al-A'raj said that the water park was closed down by Hamas two weeks ago. He said that no one was injured in the attack, which destroyed the resort completely."

The incident follows the recent closures of a restaurant and a hotel where women were seen smoking nargila. Last week the Aseel Horse Club was also closed by Hamas.

In other news involving Hamas, Egyptian forces are scouring the Sinai Peninsula after receiving a warning that Palestinian militants again plan to fire Grad rockets from Egypt into Israel and Jordan. At the same time, Egypt has arrested Mohamed Debabeche, the head of Hamas's General Security Service, at Cairo International Airport.
