Israeli forces closed Palestinian Prisoner Support headquarters in
the West Bank and inside the Green Line. A large contingent of
soldiers stormed the Nablus office Friday.
The Director General, Mohammad Basharat, told PNN that the invasion
began at 3:30 am. Israeli soldiers beat and detained whoever they
could find in the vicinity, including a security guard and a Reuters
The military confiscated five computers, documents and files from the
eighth floor and issued a written notice from the Israeli authorities
that these particular efforts to support Palestinian political
prisoners in Israeli jails are no longer allowed.
The notice indicated that the closure would be in effect for two
years. Palestinians have 24 hours from the time of issuance to appeal
the decision in the Israeli court system.
Indictments from Israeli military courts against Palestinian
political prisoners, family details, and interviews documenting
conditions inside Israeli prisons are among the confiscated property.
Basharat said that Israeli soldiers raided the old offices first
before attacking the new. A committee from the West Bank Prisoners
Support system will go to the Israeli Supreme Court to appeal.
The Director General also said that the Ramallah offices and another
inside the Green Line are also being shut down to coincide with the
blockade policy against the Palestinian people.
Early Friday morning Israeli forces raided and closed the
northwestern West Bank's Qalqilia offices.
