Israeli forces raided the West Bank city of Jenin and nearby villages detaining 12 Islamic Jihad forces and closing a charity.

The raids, which took place between 3 and 4 am, targeted Islamic Jihad members who Israel accuses of coordinating and financing planned terrorist attacks.

As part of the raid the military took computers and documents from a charitable organisation called “The Muslim Girl”. Israel officials claim the charity, belonging to university lecturer Muna Qi’dan, has links with the Islamic Jihad organisation. Qi dan was also detained during the raid.

Palestinian security sources claim that Israeli soldiers also raided the offices of the Palestinian People’s Party and the Islamic Relief Society in Jenin.
