GAZA CITY — A Gaza amusement park recently shuttered by the Hamas government has been burned down.

Ala al-Araj, an owner of Gaza Crazy Water park, said masked men tied up guards early Sunday, dumped gasoline around the plastic slides and torched them.

The park is one of Gaza's few recreational sites and serves the area's small wealthy class.

The Hamas government shut it down in August after men and women were seen mixing together.

Hamas officials would not comment.
