Israeli forces ransack charity in Jericho

July 21, 2008 4:25 P.M. (Updated: July 21, 2008 4:25 P.M.)
Jericho - Ma'an - Israeli forces broke into the offices of the Al-Isra' charity in Jericho in the eastern West Bank on Monday morning, confiscating the last remaining computer.

The Chairman of the charity, Sheikh Zayid Abu Rumi said Israeli soldiers had confiscated the rest of the computers in two previous raids.

He also claims that the soldiers inspected copies of the holy Quran in a provocative and disrespectful manner. Along with the computer they confiscated files on orphans and needy families who receive aid from the charity. On leaving Rumi claims they deliberately damaged furniture belonging to a kindergarten affiliated to the charity.

Rumi asserted that the Al-Isra' charity is an independent charity with no political affiliations, and that its mission was to offer aid and services to the needy and marginalized sections of Palestinian society.
