Israeli soldiers stormed on Thursday two charitable societies in the Hebron area, in the southern part of the West Bank, confiscated their properties and closed them by military orders for three years.
The two societies, in Al Shiokh village, and Beit Ola town, belong to the Islamic Charitable Society in Hebron. The Charitable society fosters orphans and schools them but it was also shut down by the Israeli forces earlier this year.
The National Committee for Aiding the Orphans stated that more than fourteen military vehicles and jeeps invaded Al Shiokh village on Friday at dawn, and broke into the Charitable Society and its school and confiscated their belongings.
Soldiers confiscated chairs, computers, office equipment, and documents that belong to the society and the school. Troops then hanged a military order shutting down the society for three years.
In Beit Ola village, west of Hebron, soldiers broke into the offices of the Islamic Charitable Society and confiscated computers, files and other stationeries before hanging on its main door, a military order shutting it down for three years.
The National Committee for Aiding the Orphans slammed the Israeli attack and warned that the occupation is ongoing with its policy of closing all facilities which belong to the Charitable Society, including its schools and orphan homes.
The Committee demanded a comprehensive campaign to protect the schools and facilities as they are providing shelter and aid to a large number of orphans and thousands of poor families.
