Gunmen destroy Gaza City water parkGunmen destroy Gaza City water park
By KHALED ABU TOAMEH
Unidentified gunmen set fire Sunday to the Crazy Water Park, one of the Gaza Strip’s most popular entertainment sites. Eyewitnesses said that at least 25 men participated in the predawn attack. The gunmen beat the two night watchmen, bound their hands and confiscated their mobile phones before setting the complex on fire, they said. Hamas had closed site on legal pretexts, after warning against men and women mixing at parties there. Human rights activists said that Hamas has recently stepped up its efforts to impose strict Islamic observances in the Gaza Strip.
AFP: Israel to allow first import of cars to Gaza since 2007Israel to allow first import of cars to Gaza since 2007
(AFP) – 11 hours ago
JERUSALEM — Israel will allow the import of private vehicles into the Gaza Strip for the first time since 2007, the military said Sunday.
The "transfer of vehicles for the Palestinian private sector is expected to take place for the first time since the Hamas violent takeover," the military said in a statement.
The cars were expected to cross Monday morning into the besieged strip, but it was not immediately clear how many cars would go into Gaza.
Under Hamas rule, I highly doubt any Gaza females will be allowed to drive these vehicles.
