Dozens of soldiers invaded, on Wednesday at dawn, the Health, Development, Information and Policy Institute, in the central West Bank city of Ramallah, after detonating many doors and walls, violently searched it and injured three students.
Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi, a member of the Public Committee of the “Health, Development, Information and Policy Institute” (HDIP), said more than eight Israeli military vehicles invaded the Institute campus, before the soldiers detonated many of its doors and walls, and illegally confiscated equipment, including computers.
Barghouthi, denounced the serious Israeli violations, especially since the institute’s area of work is health and human rights, and considered it another attempt to silence health and legal human rights groups, and journalists.
The soldiers fired many gas bombs, and concussion grenades, at students in the Institute, wounding three.
Late on Tuesday at night, the soldiers invaded, the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, kidnapped two Palestinians and confiscated surveillance tapes and equipment.
