The Islamic Awakening Party announced on Saturday that its offices in northern Tunisia had been set ablaze, Palestinian daily Al-Quds reported. 

The Islamist party, which is the ruling party of Tunisia following the ouster of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali as part of the Arab Spring, declared that its local headquarters in Makthar had been completely destroyed by the fire.

The announcement went on to point fingers at "radical left-wing parties and other organizations" for the damage and demanded that authorities investigate the crime and prosecute the guilty parties.
