In the latest of several attacks on a congregation of the Living Bread Church in East Jerusalem, young men with ties to a Palestinian militant group wired shut a church door and sprayed a gaseous substance at those inside hours before dawn on Monday September 29.

According to the Living Bread Church leader Karen Dunham, no one was injured as those sleeping or keeping vigil fled into a hallway before the chemical spray could impair breathing, but it was the second “gas attack” in the past two weeks.
