Internet café in Kahn Younis targeted by assailants

Jan. 9, 2010 9:22 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 10, 2010 9:34 A.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – Witnesses said an explosive charge was planted near an internet café in the town of Al-Qarara near Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip Saturday, destroying much of the interior of the café when it was detonated.

No injuries were reported and no group claimed responsibility for the attack. It was the second such incident in the past week, with an internet café in Khan Younis having been targeted by a similar attack.

In the past two years there have been waves of similar incidents, some thought to be the act of ultra-islamists in Gaza who object to the services being offered at the shops targeted. In the past, they have included CD/DVD shops, cafés, internet cafés, and male hairdresser shops catering to a female clientele.

Further south, in Rafah, a Salafist group named Jund Ansar Allah took over a mosque in August, declaring the southern Gaza city an Islamic emirate and declaring the Hamas government not strict enough when it came to imposing Islamic law on the area.
