Israeli soldiers invaded, earlier Friday, the headquarters of the Work Health Committees in Sateh Marhaba area, in the al-Biereh city, in central West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers used heavy hammers and equipment to smash the gates, before storming the officers, and violently searched the building causing excessive property damage.

The Work Health Committee issued a statement condemning the Israeli violation and called on various legal and human right groups in the region and around the world, to denounce these escalating violations, and act on stopping them.

It added that the invasion is a serious violation to various international laws and treaties, especially those regarding the protection of medical and relief facilities.

“The escalating Israeli violations against nongovernmental Palestinian institutions, especially those providing humanitarian, health services, development and education, require immediate international intervention,” it said, “Our people are subject to siege, constant violations by the soldiers and the illegal colonialist settlers, while Israel continues to violate their basic rights and attack the very institutions that serve them.”
