Blast Rocks French Cultural Center in Gaza City; Attack Sends Worrying Vibes to French Officials

A powerful blast rocked the French Cultural Center in Gaza City last night, marking the second time the facility was hit by an explosion in the past two months, the France 24 website reports today (December 13, 2014).

There were no reports of injuries, but the building was partly damaged, France 24's Gallagher Fenwick reported.

"The outside of the facility has been damaged by an explosive device," he said, adding that the attack was sending worrying signals to French authorities.

"It is very symbolic," Fenwick added, because it was "the last foreign consulate left in Gaza where Palestinians could get visas for abroad."
