GAZA CITY (Ma'an) – Unidentified arsonists on Tuesday morning set fire to a private car belonging to the spokesman of the Gaza union of civil servants while it was parked in front of his house in Gaza City.

Khalil Zayyan told Ma'an that "I was surprised at 3 a.m. when I saw my neighbors trying to put out a fire which broke out in the neighborhood, and we discovered later that the fire was in my own car."

He added that gasoline was found on parts of the vehicle which "indicates the fire was set on purpose."

"I do not have any enemies … the attack is part of the ongoing attempts to mess with Gaza security."

The Ministry of Interior of the former Hamas-run government has released videos showing former security officers of the Palestinian Authority confessing that they were behind a wave of arsons and explosions in the Gaza Strip.

Fatah officials immediately denied the claims saying that Hamas "fabricated the videos."
