CEC suspends its work after attacks on its offices and personnel in Nablus, Deir Al-Balah and North Gaza

Tuesday, December 13, 2005

Today, a group of armed men stormed CEC offices in Nablus, Deir al-Balah and North Gaza in the second attack of this nature in two days. The men fired shots at the offices, destroyed office equipment and verbally and physically assaulted CEC staff members.

Following the attacks, the CEC announced the suspension of work at all of its offices until further notice and until it receives assurances that the safety of CEC personnel will be guaranteed.

The CEC calls on all relevant parties to intervene in order to put a stop on such attacks as the commission is unable to fulfill its duties under such conditions.
