Israel storms PA office in Hebron

CWRC monitors the violations of the Israeli government and settlers in the occupied West Bank.


Israeli forces today broke into the office of Palestinian government’s Colonisation and Wall Resistance Commission (CWRC) in the Old City of occupied Hebron.

Head of the southern West Bank branch of the commission, Younis Arar, said Israeli forces stormed the office and questioned staff members. Employees were asked about their role in the organisation and the images which decorate the offices.

This is the fifth time the Israeli military has invaded CWRC’s office five times over the past two months, the organisation wrote on Facebook.

“This is offensive to the Palestinian government’s jurisdiction and violates international norms,” the official said.
