Israeli forces raid Palestinian football association HQ

Nov. 24, 2014 9:49 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 26, 2014 12:33 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday morning raided the headquarters of the Palestinian Football association in al-Ram near Jerusalem.

A statement from the PFA said three Israeli military jeeps raided the headquarters at 9:20 a.m. on Monday and apprehended the IDs of several of its employees, prevented them from entering it, and interrogated them.

They also searched the ground floor of the building, the statement said.

Israeli forces spent 40 minutes searching the building and remained around 90 minutes in its vicinity afterwards.

The statement added that Susan Shalabi, the head of the PFA, asked an officer about the reason of the raid, and informed him that it was an institute related to the Federal International Football Association and should not be raided by an armed group, to which the officer responded that it was not a raid.

The statement explained that a number of journalists who were present in the area documented the raid. Before Israeli forces left the place they tried to prevent journalists from taking pictures.
