Offices funded by Christian Aid were attacked by Israeli forces today. A YMCA office in the West Bank city of Ramallah was attacked in the morning. The Israeli Army blasted and blew up the entrance and the guardroom of the building in which the offices are located. Afterwards they blew up and destroyed the contents of the offices of the East Jerusalem YMCA. The lift, the cars, the equipment and machines used for training were all destroyed. A spokesman said: "All our operations are at a halt and our staff and volunteers are unable to leave their homes."
