A group of men early Thursday morning vandalized the UNRWA facility in Gaza City where a group of children were planning to break the world record for most kites flown simultaneously later in the day, Palestinian News Agency WAFA reported.

No one was injured in the attack although part of the facility was set on fire and a United Nations flag was burned, according to the report.

It was unclear if the attack had an impact on the days events.
