The IDF raided several NGOs and civil society organizations in Ramallah early Tuesday, Ma’an reported.

IDF soldiers raided the offices of the Agricultural Work Committees, human rights group al-Dameer, and the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees, located in the Qaddura refugee camp.

Israeli forces confiscated files and computer hardware from the women’s committee before ransacking the office, witnesses said.

During the raid, clashes broke out with local youths and Israeli soldiers, who responded by firing tear gas.

Military forces also raided the offices of the Palestinian NGO Network.

Palestinian National Initiative chief Mustafa Barghouti said the Israeli raids were “piracy,” adding that targeting civil society organizations that serve the Palestinian public is unacceptable.

In February, Israeli forces raided two Palestinian television networks in Ramallah and briefly detained four employees.

The Jewish Press contacted the IDF Spokesperson and will publish their response as soon as it is received.

    They must have had a good reason to do this.

  2. Bob Hathaway says:

    So-called NGOs are notorious for providing information to the enemy. Peace Now, for instance, even flies airplanes over Judea and Samaria and maps out new building construction and provides that information to their funders, like the EU, so they can criticize Israel.No NGO is trustworthy and none of them are there for Israel's benefit. They all receiving their funding from Israel's enemies.

  3. Israel has the right to confiscate materials from NGOs aiding the enemy!

  4. Anonymous says:

    I'm very glad that Israel is continuing to take a tough stance against the Islamists, despite threats by the EU, UN and WH. I feel very strongly that, although the media doesn't report it, most non-Muslims in the world are growing more appreciative of Israel by the day. Corrupt Western governments might be pro-Islam but not the people.

  5. well said…thses ngo s have to learn that they can t get away with there anti Israel nonsense without backlash…..G-d Bless the IDF
