UNRWA camp burning: Vandalism or terrorism?

A Fatah spokesman has stated that the burning of the UNRWA summer camp yesterday morning, carried out by dozens of masked armed men, was an act of terrorism.

Osama Qawasmi stated that the evidence shows that the attackers were associated with Hamas - the same people who were supposed to be protecting the area.

The New York Times mentioned yesterday that Hamas has in the past blamed UNRWA for "implementing a plan to spoil the growing generation of Gaza," which mirrors the threats that accompanied the attack.

UNRWA has been careful to describe the attack as "vandalism," not terror.
