IDF Raided NGO Offices in Ramallah, Tear Gassed Protesters

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

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.

He is 5’7″, slim, brown eyes, short, black hair. He was last seen wearing IAF uniform and carrying a black handbag.

Last month, during Operation Pillar of Defense, Gaza terrorists announced they would be on the lookout for Israeli soldiers they could kidnap and use them in prisoner exchanges. IDF soldiers are regularly warned against hitchhiking.

No IDF Soldier Involved in Killing of Ax Wielding Arab

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

IDF Spokesperson Lt. Ella Barzilai released the following statement:

“In the past couple of hours there have been several claims that IDF soldiers caused the death of an axe-wielding Palestinian. Just to clarify, no IDF soldiers were involved in the incident. For more details, get in touch with the Shin Bet’s spokesman.”

The Jewish Press, which originally reported the killing, has now changed its headline to suggest it was Israeli GSS agents who did the killing.

Better late than never. Unless, of course, the GSS spokesperson is working on a hurried email announcemnet as we speak.
