Israeli occupation forces yesterday stole 20,000 shekels ($6,000) from two Palestinian houses in the West Bank city of Hebron, Quds Net News reported.

Sources reported that Israeli occupation forces raided the houses of the two brothers Abdul-Karim and Ahmed Abu-Rammouze taking the money from their homes.

This is not the first time that the Israeli occupation forces have stolen money and other items from Palestinians when they ransack their homes. Often authorities claim the funds have been “confiscated” because the Palestinians “supported acts of terror” and received the funds from unknown sources.

Israel’s policy of night raids has repeatedly been condemned by international rights bodies as it leaves victims feeling unsafe in their own homes. Heavily armed Israeli soldiers, often with large dogs, regularly raid Palestinian home, wake the children and arrest one or more of them.
