B'Tselem: Relieved and eager to get back to work

A fire broke out at our office in Jerusalem this evening. None of our staff were in the building, but people working on other floors had to be evacuated by the fire brigade.

Following the announcement by the fire brigade that the cause of the fire in our office is probably an electrical fault, we are extremely relieved and eager to begin the cleanup as soon as possible.

Over the past few hours we experienced an outpouring of support and solidarity from friends and supporters in Israel, in the Occupied Territories and abroad. We thank you all for your kindness, and promise to get back to work, and carry on until the end of the occupation.
