Israeli forces confiscate contents of Hebron factory

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces confiscated the contents of a dairy factory in Hebron late Wednesday, less than a week after Israel issued a demolition order to the Islamic charity which owns the property.

"We received an order a week ago, from the Israeli council of planning, to remove the factory under the pretext that it was built without a license," Sheikh Hatim al-Bakri, who chairs Hebron Islamic Charitable Society, told Ma'an.

"We filed an appeal at Israeli courts against the decision and the case is still pending a court decision, but the occupation observes no law."

"This is a punishment to humanity," he added.

Money from the factory goes to orphans registered with the Islamic Charitable Society, al-Bakri said, and the factory employs around 52 workers.
