JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces early Monday raided the offices of two Palestinian organizations in the northern West Bank, security sources said.

Palestinian security forces told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers broke into the office of the Palestinian National Initiative political party and a Hamas-affiliated charitable organization, the Muslim Girl Society.

Soldiers ransacked the offices, spending hours searching the premises, before confiscating a number of computers, the sources said.

Mustafa Barghouti, head of the Palestinian National Initiative, confirmed the raid on his party's office.

He described the Israeli army's actions across the West Bank throughout their search for Israeli teenagers as "collective punishment."

Israeli forces have deployed heavily throughout the West Bank amid a search for three youths who went missing late Thursday from an area near the Gush Etzion settlement.

Soldiers have arrested over 150 Palestinians, killed one, and injured several others during the campaign to the find the missing teens.
