Meanwhile, in Jenin…

April 16, 2009

Jenin

The Freedom Theatre in Jenin was set on fire for the second time yesterday. The Theatre was rebuilt in 2006 after being bulldozed to the ground by the Israeli army.

‘The main door of the theatre was completely burned, but the fire did not spread inside the building and the theatre remains largely unharmed. 

‘This was the second attempt to burn the theatre. On the night when Al Kamandjati Music Centre in Jenin was devastatingly set on fire three weeks ago, there was also a first failed attempt to destroy The Freedom Theatre. 

‘The Palestinian Police was immediately informed of the initial attempt to burn the theatre, but to date nothing has come out of the police investigation. This renewed attempt confirms that the theatre remains unprotected and a target for more attacks in the near future.’
