Israeli Forces Raid Offices of West Bank NGOs

Israeli forces raided the offices of three Palestinian non-government organisations overnight, confiscating computers and other material, one of the groups said on Tuesday.

The Israeli military said it was checking reports of the raids, which Addameer said also targeted the Ramallah offices of the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees and the Palestinian NGO Network.

Although the West Bank city of Ramallah nominally falls under full Palestinian administrative and security control, Israeli forces regularly carry out raids in the city and its surroundings.

Addameer (Arabic for conscience) is a prominent Palestinian NGO campaigning for rights of Palestinians held in Israeli jails.
